A look behind the scenes

The story of hydrosoluble PEG-free oils

There are many active ingredients in the market that have been designed in the laboratory, although sometimes with limited practical approach. Greentech’s Aquasiloil range consists of plant oils that solubilize easily in the aqueous phase. In order to better un-derstand the development behind this approach, COSSMA interviewed Lau-rent Chaisemartin responsible for the creation of this range.

Body Care

Here is a wide variety of body care products, and the choice of formulations we are offering here for your inspiration mirrors exactly this diversity. We have selected many different formulations ranging from the everyday body lotion and shower gel to deodorants. Floratech presents an interesting alternative to the everyday body lotion with its Moringa Butter Moisturizing Body Masque. Another unusual idea is Croda’s Crystal Clear SOS Nourishing Stick, the Ready-to-use Oil Gel Bases by Alfa Chemicals, BASF’s Sprayable Body Lotion, or the Body Oil against Dry Skin by GfN Selco.

The very varied mix of basic formulations that have been specially submitted for this issue by ingredients manufacturers can be downloaded free of charge from our web site. You will find your access codes on the Internet button on page 3 and 54 of the printed edition.
