TRI-K launches a new set of natural alternatives

Published: 1-Nov-2017

TRI-K Industries, Inc. is launching a new set of natural alternatives to silicone and petrolatum this fall. First seen at California SCC Suppliers’ Day last week, TRI-K will be featuring 2 new products at in-cosmetics Asia this week.

Consumer demands for natural, sustainable and safe have given rise to mega trends seen throughout the industry. A growing number of consumers believe that natural skin and hair care products are gentler, safer, higher quality and better for the environment.

Furthermore, there is increasing demand for sustainably sourced ingredients in beauty & personal care. In response to this ideology, combined with the lifestyle shift towards healthy, clean and environmental conscious living seen across the globe, TRI-K developed Fision EcoSil and Fision EcoLatum S as natural alternatives to silicone and petrolatum.

TRI-K’s Fision EcoSil is an excellent natural alternative to silicone. Silicones are widely used in the industry and are known for their functionality and cost-effectiveness. Yet health and environmental safety concerns are rapidly growing.

According to Mintel, global beauty and personal care products launched in 2017 are expected to be 39% higher than last year. Fision EcoSil delivers very similar sensory performance to dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane (D5) and cylohexasiloxane (D6) and leaves skin feeling smooth and moisturised. It has also been shown to improve hair manageability and shine.

As an advantage, Fision EcoSil is compatible with oily ingredients for a better solubility profile and is derived from olives which contain nourishing phytocompounds to support healthy skin.

Petrolatum is used in the beauty and personal care industry as an emollient and 1 out of every 14 cosmetic products is said to contain it, according to Best Health: The Truth About Petrolatum.

However, since petrolatum is not sustainable or renewable and requires processing to remove carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, the market is seeking greener alternatives. Fision EcoLatum S is a great natural alternative to petrolatum. This plant derived ingredient has a high affinity with skin lipids for great emolliency and helps create an intensively moisturised feel.

Suitable for all skin types, Fision EcoLatum S has a very similar sensory profile to petrolatum. In addition to having a natural viscosity building effect, the product contains wholesome skin conditioning ingredients.
