Covestro has presented the Baycusan® polymer product family at the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers’ Day 2017 in New York City. Here’s a closer look at the event.

Polymers for Advanced Formulations

For top-notch hair protection, repair and styling properties, Covestro has highlighted polymers that enable advanced formulations:

  • Baycusan® C 1008 offers hair heat protection while providing a flexible hold and natural gloss. Covestro will present a new application with this ingredient at the booth, supporting semi-permanent hair coloring. This ingredient boosts color intensity so that hair looks revitalized, shiny and sleek.
  • Baycusan® C 1010 is a sister product used in waterborne hairstyling formulations such as waxes, lotions, creams and foams and provides a long-lasting hold with a natural feel. The material helps protect against heat, humidity and environmental factors.

Skin-friendly Anti-pollution Formulations

For healthy and youthful looking skin, several skin-friendly, anti-pollution formulations will be featured at Suppliers’ Day:

  • Baycusan® C 1004 acts as an invisible and breathable barrier, protecting skin against particulate matter. The film-former material can be used in sun protection formulations for extra protection against sand and water.
  • Baycusan® C 1000 makes it possible for formulators to produce high-performance sun protection formulations with a light feel. Appropriate for use on sensitive skin, this film-former takes the performance of sun protection formulations to the next level: it reduces the migration of UV absorbers across the skin’s surface by 80 percent. For beachgoers, the formulations are long lasting and robust.
  • Baycusan® C 2000 is ethanol-based polyurethane film-former that enables new textures and product forms in the sun care category: transparent light gels and oils with a high level of sun protection and water resistance. Easily applied on dry or wet skin, withstanding sweat or water exposure, these new products have a delightful feel and cool touch.

Covestro has also showcased material solutions for cosmetics, including film formers for low-odor waterborne nail polishes.
