Cetiol® SoftFeel – A New Soft-solid Emollient

Based on castor oil, this versatile ingredient can help to create unique textures in a variety of beauty and personal care applications, in addition to acting as a clean alternative to petrolatum. BASF is a founding member of the sustainable castor initiative Pragati which enables sustainable castor crop production. In the future, BASF plans to source certified sustainable oil from the program.

Taking Antiperspirants and Deo-actives to New Heights

Introducing five unique deodorant formulas and one antiperspirant formula, featuring natural ingredients and innovative formats. The company utilized a portfolio of sustainable ingredients to create several formulas with >98 percent naturality, according to ISO 16128. Additionally, testing was conducted on individual ingredients to support microbiome-friendly claims. The development of unique cream and bi-phase spray formats, as well as the addition of actives, offer a luxurious feel in these standard self-care products.

Organic-certified Algae Extract Improves Eye Contour

This new, bioactive ingredient is based on the marine algae Fucus Vesiculosus (commonly known as Bladderwrack) and works in three ways: helping fight dark circles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and enhancing skin luminosity around the eyes, all with as little as one week of use. Seanactiv™ contains a high content of fucoidan, a polysaccharide characterized by fucose monomers and extracted from the marine algae species. Fucoidan has long been known for its anti-irritation and skin barrier beauty enhancing properties.

The collection of four hair styling formulations is made with natural ingredients yet offers uncompromised styling performance. The Clearly Natural Styling Gel is a medium-hold styling gel with excellent curl retention; the Algae Styling Gel provides a natural hold and long-lasting curl definition, even in high humidity.

The Strong & Smooth Styling Gel offers BASF’s strongest hold with a flowable texture and extra conditioning benefits for hair; and the Strengthening Styling Jelly provides medium hold and features a jelly-like texture and a microprotein that strengthens hair fibers. Naturally Styled products feature star ingredients Rheocare® XGN (Xanthan Gum) and Hydagen® 558P (Algin) for maximum styling performance.
