This year’s show was the best attended In Cosmetics show held outside of Paris, with over 7,200 visitors.  The presentation focused on the utility of bio-based succinic acid as a versatile intermediate for novel, natural personal care ingredients. 

BioAmber Inc.’s bio-succinic acid can be used as a preservative, an effervescent agent, and an intermediate for natural emollient esters and solvents.  Emollient esters from bio-based succinic acid impart a silky, powdery light, dry, non-greasy sensory signal to hair and skin care formulations, while providing gloss and shine to hair care formulations.  The esters are easily formulated, are up to 100% derived from plants, and are mild and non-irritating, giving an excellent combination of performance and environmental profile.
