Hydrolite 6 green is based on sustainably sourced raw materials

Symrise has introduced Hydrolite 6 green to its portfolio. 

The 6-carbon 1,2-alkanediol is claimed to be the cosmetics market’s first green 1,2-hexanediol. 

It is described as a green version of Symrise’s multifunctional ingredients Hydrolite 6 and Hydrolite 6O.

The new addition comes from sustainable sources and is an efficient skin moisturiser. 

It additionally helps to solubilise lipophilic cosmetic ingredients, improve the sensory profile of formulations, stabilise emulsions (due to its smaller droplet sizes) and enhance product protection.

“With Hydrolite 6 green, we are expanding our portfolio of sustainable multifunctional ingredients and are once again demonstrating our innovative strength,” said Dr Balint Koroskenyi, Senior Global Product Manager Cosmetics Ingredients Division at Symrise. 

“This allows us to meet the demands of both consumers and our customers as we contribute to having more sustainable options in cosmetics.”
