Lubrizol Launches Natural Film Former & Thickener to Enhance Sensory ExperienceLubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) introduces Sensomer™ Tara polymer. It is a multifunctional, biodegradable natural film former and thickener. It has excellent sensory and synergistic behavior with other thickeners.

Flexible by nature, it enhances the consumer's sensory experience in skin care, hair care, and hair color applications.

Provides Thicker, Creamier & Silkier Feel in Beauty Products

Sensomer™ Tara polymer reaches a viscosity of 40,000 mPa∙s. This enables the creation of high-viscosity formulations. They provide a thicker, creamier, and silkier feel in beauty products. It can be used in moisturizers, sunscreens, hair conditioners, styling products, and color treatments.

In skin care applications, Sensomer™ Tara polymer has a silky feel with no drag or stickiness. Its creamy texture provides good pickup with no stringiness. A blind test revealed that, during application, the polymer was perceived as softer and less sticky. After application, participants also reported reduced pilling in the afterfeel. It also has a synergy with Kelco-Care™ diutan gum. This increases the yield value, leading to robust emulsion stabilization and higher viscosity.

When added to conditioners and treatments, Sensomer™ Tara polymer brings conditioning benefits to the fiber. It also provides a smooth and easy-to-spread texture. In styling applications, it shows better curl retention and a better smoothness feel than guar gum. In addition, it has anti-pollution properties, protecting the fiber against particle adhesion. Finally in coloration enables no-drip rheology for a better consumer experience.

Sensomer™ Tara polymer is COSMOS-approved, vegan suitable, and microbiome friendly. It is also readily biodegradable (according to OECD 301F). It is NOC 100% (according to ISO16128). It is obtained by a 100% mechanical process undertaken on the Tara endosperm. This gives it a high-sustainability profile.
