The new material is a polymeric emulsifier for skin and sun care formulations
Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty (LLS Beauty) has launched a new ingredient PemuPur START polymer, to enable the development of stable skin and sun care formulations that are naturally derived without sacrificing the refreshing sensory experience.
PemuPur START polymer is claimed to meet consumer expectations as a high-performing, natural-derived polymeric emulsifier for building oil-in-water emulsions.
It provides excellent emulsion stabilisation at low use levels (0.5-1.0 wt%) and up to 50% oil content, limiting the need for co-emulsifiers. These characteristics make it ideal for creating mild, fluid and sprayable emulsions suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
PemuPur START polymer also has a Renewable Carbon Index of 0.96, according to ISO 16128, and it is readily biodegradable (OECD 301F).
