Glossyliance:

Hair has become the ΄must-have΄ fashion accessory for women. It is a great asset that can be used to create an impact with an infinite number of styling options. Using a combination of white and green technologies, Soliance has created the ultimate shine active ingredient: Glossyliance. Composed of extracts of sugar cane and lemon zest extracts, obtained with a mix of alpha hydroxy acids, this delicate and natural blend is a veritable beauty enhancer for hair.

Smoothed hair scales (Ex vivo test)

The hairs were observed along the distal zone under a Scanning Electron Microscope.
Using a shampoo with 5% Glossyliance smooth the hair scales.

Increased shine (In vivo test)

A clinical trial was carried out on 80 volunteers. The effects of different products on hair shine are double-blind tested by a professional hairdresser using a point scoring system.

Glossyliance significantly increases hair shine.

Sophogreen:

If there are numerous solubilisers on the market, most of these are petroleum-based. Nowadays, cosmetics companies are increasingly committed to sustainable development and are trying to make their formulas “greener”. To accommodate these new needs, Soliance has created a plant-based solubiliser: Sophogreen.
Sophogreen is produced from fully natural, locally sourced raw materials as an alternative to petroleum-based solubilisers.

Sophogreen’s solubilising capacity was compared with the industry standard: PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil. The results are expressed as a percentage of the solubiliser dry matter required to solubilise 0.5% of fragrance oils.

Sophogreen is the first locally sourced bio-solubiliser. Sophogreen allows you to solve solubisation problems with a natural solution. The product is readily available; it is guaranteed GMO-free, Palm-free and has superior performance as a solubiliser.

Appygreen 812:

To meet new challenges like minimizing the use of primary surfactants, generally anionic and respond to the “sulphate free” trend, Soliance created Appygreen 812, a mild and ecological surfactant.
Appygreen 812 is a plant-based formulation booster that improves cleaning and increases the viscosity and foam volume of your formulations.
Appygreen 812 is a cost and environmental - effective ingredient.

We evaluated the ability of Appygreen 812 to increase the quantity and stability of foam of “sulphate-free” cosmetic formulas.

Appygreen 812 allows you to produce “sulphate-free” formulas with remarkable foam volume and stability. It has synergies with mild surfactant bases, with or without SLES, it is the ideal green partner for rinse-off cosmetics.
