Hydrolite 7 green, from Symrise, represents a new generation of green multifunctional ingredients. The unique seven-carbon alkanediol comes from 100% bio-based sources, derived from sustainably sourced castor bean oil.
The ingredient is clear and colourless neat that can go into a variety of traditional or natural/green cosmetic formulations, and works with all skin types. In recent years, the green trend has been gaining momentum with growing consumer interest in renewable raw material innovations and finished product development. At the same time, 1,2- alkanediols have been increasingly used in the Personal Care industry as multifunctional ingredients since the introduction of Hydrolite 5 by Symrise 30 years ago.
Thus, Hydrolite 7 green brings a long-awaited response to consumers’ and formulators’ wish lists as the cosmetics industry has been seeking a nature-derived, biodegradable, liquid ingredient with multiple benefits packed into a single molecule, which offers good economics and shows important properties at low concentrations.
With Hydrolite 7 green, Symrise offers an exclusive high purity bio-based liquid multifunctional, whose multiple benefits reduce formulation complexity while improving finished product properties.
“We continue to demonstrate our commitment to continuing innovation, to sustainability, to the green transformation of cosmetic ingredients, and to the evolving needs of customers and consumers. We feel proud to present this latest member of our portfolio of quality products,” said Dr. Balint Koroskenyi, Global Product Manager at Symrise. “It makes a complementary addition to the range of alkanediols and to the best multifunctionals overall.”
