Polymeric emulsifier for skin and sun care formulations
Lubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) has introduced PemuPur START polymer – naturally sensational, simply refreshing. Consumer priorities on health and sustainability are challenging formulators to develop stable skin and sun care formulations.
PemuPur START polymer meets consumers’ expectations as a high-performing, natural-derived polymeric emulsifier. Its name promises excellent STA-bility and Refreshing T-exture, making it a grounded solution to START building oil-in-water emulsions.
PemuPur START polymer provides excellent emulsion stabilization at low use levels (0.5-1.0 wt%) and up to 50% oil content, limiting the need for coemulsifiers. These characteristics, coupled with its limited surface activity, make it ideal for creating mild, fluid and sprayable emulsions suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. PemuPur START polymer has a Renewable Carbon Index of 0.96, according to ISO 16128, and it is readily biodegradable (OECD 301F).
