The market for personal care esters is valued at over $500 million. The new succinate emollients are highly-versatile because of their sensory properties and outstanding ability to disperse pigments. These fluids can be used in skin care, hair care, color and antiperspirant products to provide shine and a light fast-drying emolliency. These emollients are suitable as alternatives to silicone fluids for improving skin-feel, as well as enhancing shine and texture in hair care products. In natural formulations, they can be used to reduce the greasiness of natural oils.
Inolex are commercializing a range of succinate technologies as natural silicone alternatives; the LexFeel N range of fluids feel like silicones, yet unlike silicones, they are 100% natural, readily-biodegradable, non-GMO, eco-certified and sustainable.
Daniel Winn, Business Director, Inolex says, “The new range of biosuccinic acid-based fluids offers an unprecedented opportunity to provide the benefits of silicones in an all-natural format with a sensory experience that is a close match to the modern consumer’s hygiene and beauty needs.
Babette Pettersen, SVP Marketing & Sales, BioAmber Inc. says, “These emollients demonstrate the versatility of biobased succinic acid in providing performance solutions for a range of personal care applications. Our partnership with Inolex illustrates the benefits of joint application development work to create innovative new products, combining BioAmber Inc.’s expertise and commercial capability in biosuccinic acid and Inolex’s expertise and market access in the personal care market.”
