Creating Paraben-free Formulations
Tony Mazzarella, NAFTA business manager, explained:
“Formulators are increasingly concerned about microbial contamination in cosmetics. Without preservatives, skin creams, makeup and shampoos can become contaminated and spoil from mold, fungi and bacteria. Cosmetic formulators’ options for useful, non-restricted preservatives has continued to shrink over the years. Our new Solbrol products offer the cosmetic market innovative options to protect and stabilize the value of their formulations. These products have been designed specifically to meet the technical market trends while keeping cosmetics safe throughout their useful life.”
The cosmetic preservatives of the Solbrol range include paraben-free and preservative-free (free of formaldehyde, halogen, and isothiazolinones donors) blends designed to protect cosmetic formulations. In addition, LANXESS’ Purolan®
portfolio features isoparaffins, actives, UV filters, esters and aroma chemicals.
