|DuPont Tate & Lyle to Present Facial Moisturizer Formulation
Following the 10-Year Anniversary event, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products will present the formulating techniques at in-cosmetics Global in London on April 5, 2017, at 1:50 p.m. GMT.
Formulation Featuring Zemea® Propanediol
, produced by DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, is the key component to deliver this performance. The water-in-oil emulsion combines both water-soluble organic sunscreen actives and inorganic sunscreen actives
Marketing Manager, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, David Shaw stated:
- Zemea® propanediol acts as a solvent to keep the powdered water-soluble organic actives in solution while evaporation of water occurs as the cream is applied to the skin.
- Keeping the actives in solution maximizes their performance, allowing them to effectively protect against UVA and UVB.
- Additional benefits of Zemea® propanediol include lack of skin irritation, improved humectancy, and excellent sensory characteristics, all ideal for producing an aesthetically pleasing facial moisturizer.
“Consumers are increasingly aware of the need for daily, broad spectrum sun protection to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy. There is a distinct desire for skin care products that are aesthetically pleasing, but at the same time provide proper protection from the sun. This formulation is able to capture both and we look forward to scientists experimenting with these innovative techniques to improve their sun protection products.”
Broad Spectrum Sun Protection
The new Zemea®
propanediol containing formulation underwent in-vivo SPF testing including a 40-minute water resistance test
. Critical wavelength and broad spectrum testing also was completed. The final recipe achieved SPF three-times the level of sunscreen active used and provides broad spectrum protection, water resistance, and an SPF 25+.
Although this is a daily facial moisturizer, the techniques are directly applicable in developing a sunscreen for beachwear.
Attendees at in-cosmetics Global will receive a free sample of this daily facial moisturizer with sunscreen protection. Additional information will be shared about Zemea®
propanediol at stand AA40.
