Gattefossé will officially launch its plant-based O/W emulsifier, Emulium Dermolea MB, at in-cosmetics Global 2023 this month in Barcelona.
The French cosmetic actives producer says the new ingredient reduces skin stress and brings long-term soothing due to its unique lipidic composition rich in sterols and triterpenes.
The new product was developed using Gattefossé’s expertise in wax butter technology and is composed of candelilla, rice bran, and jojoba waxes.
Emulium Dermolea MB is multifunctional, making it possible to develop a wide range of cosmetic applications suitable for all skin types and climates.
It can emulsify oil phases up to 40% and create thin sprays to thick butters suitable for skin care, suncare, makeup, and hair/scalp care. It is in the form of pellets, making it easy to formulate with.
“Skin sensitivity is an increasing issue worldwide. We have developed an ingredient that enables the formulation of textures with proven soothing benefits,” said Lysiane Teyssier, product marketing leader for personal care textures & applications at Gattefossé.
“COSMOS-approved, suitable for vegan formulations, and fully substantiated in vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo, this new ingredient will meet the current expectations of formulators and consumers,” she added.
“We are delighted that Emulium Dermolea MB is among the shortlisted functional ingredients of the in-cosmetics global innovation zone awards.”
