The green future of modern product protection

Product Protection is an evolving category producing innovations that are significant for the beauty brands of tomorrow.

At in-cosmetics Global 2022 in Paris, Symrise will present its latest breakthrough innovation in modern product protection called Hydrolite® 8 green—the first high quality 100% bio-based neat caprylyl glycol launched in the cosmetics market.

The desire for a more sustainable future is not new but has certainly come into greater focus in the world of beauty and personal care. As consumers are more conscious about their products’ impact on the environment, they seek more functional, high performing and results driven products that provide more value and promote greater ingredient transparency.

Formulators face daily challenges to develop high quality, functional, appealing, and stable products. At the same time, the change in consumer expectations puts a positive pressure on formulators trying to meet their demands—striving to create a ‘greener’ portfolio and moving towards more sustainable products.

Symrise continues to stay one step ahead and to support formulating for the future by bringing new innovations that are powerful, performant, and equally sustainable like Hydrolite® 8 green. In addition to enhancing product protection, the new innovative ingredient offers a wide range of other benefits for consumers and formulators alike— such as protecting the skin microbiome, providing moisturization, improving the dispersion of pigments and providing wetting properties.

While the journey of 1,2-alkanediols as multifunctional ingredients in cosmetics started 30 years ago, it’s only getting more exciting with the increased sustainability of multifunctionals and the cosmetic market in general. The emergence of green alkanediols is not only meeting the market needs but leads the green transformation.

Their unique benefits broaden the possibilities for successful and more versatile formulations, while appealing to the senses, minds, and conscience of consumers and contributing to a ‘greener’, more sustainable future.
