Minaolve_New_Biobased_ProductsMinasolve launches three nature-based E-Leen blends developed using a new bio-based version of Caprylyl Glycol. The new formulations offer advantages over conventional blends, including their suitability for cold and continuous processing.

Bio-based Alternatives for Formulations

Earlier, Caprylyl Glycol, a well-established skin moisturizer and antimicrobial stabilizer for cosmetic applications, was only available from petrochemical sources. Minasolve is targeting EMEA and South American cosmetics producers with its bio-based alternatives, E-Leen 8, E-Leen P8, or E-Leen GC 8, that will enable them to increase the natural origin index of their formulations.

According to Minasolve, green cosmetic producers currently find preservation solutions for natural cosmetics comparatively expensive or find that they require application at high concentration levels. Minasolve developed the new E-Leen product range with bio-based Caprylyl Glycol as a cost-effective solution for the protection of green cosmetics at low concentration levels.

Minasolve’s new ingredients, E-Leen 8, P8, and GC 8, match market expectations. These new products are among the most versatile and cost-efficient solutions to protect natural and eco-certified personal care formulations,” said Emmanuel Peulens, managing director of Minasolve.

New E-Leen Products: COSMOS-approved

All three new E-Leen products are COSMO-approved skin moisturizers and antimicrobial stabilizers, produced from 100 percent renewable, vegetal and GMO-free raw materials. They are easy to use liquids at ambient temperature.

Since the new E-Leen products with bio-sourced Caprylyl Glycol are stabilized in liquid form, they offer advantages over conventional Caprylyl Glycol, an alkanediol which has been in use as a cosmetic ingredient for 30 years.

The features of new E-Leen products are as follows:

  • Nature-based E-Leen 8 is a ready-to-use liquid version. Even after storage in cold areas, simple warming to ambient temperature is sufficient. As no heating devices are required for handling, E-Leen 8 is suitable for cold and continuous processing, saving time and energy during production.
  • E-Leen P8 is an advanced mixture of bio-based Caprylyl Glycol and bio-based Phenylpropanol, a natural aroma ingredient. It offers users a reliable solution for the protection of formulations at low use-levels, even at a high pH.
  • E-Leen GC 8 is a mild alternative for sensitive skin formulated using bio-based Caprylyl Glycol and Glyceryl Caprylate/Caprate.

We have achieved another significant milestone with the development of bio-based Caprylyl Glycol; this follows the successful launch in 2014 of our bio-based Pentylene Glycol. We will continue to bring nature-derived innovations to a cosmetics industry that seeks greener, safer and more sustainable ingredients,” added Peulens.
