Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Kuraray
Isopentyldiol by Kuraray is a multi-functional ingredient acting as moisturizer, humectant, thickener, O/W emulsion stabilizer, solubilizer and cuticle protector. It also acts as a carrier of hydrophilic actives in anhydrous systems and lipophilic actives in aqueous systems and foam & viscosity booster in sodium lauryl ether sulphates (SLES) based systems. It solubilizes difficult actives such as glycyrrhetinic acid, salicylic acid, resveratrol or boswellia serrata extracts. It shows repairing effect, anti-frizz effect, improves smoothness and shows resistance to breakage. It supports a high gliding application, the uniformity of the trace and the long-lasting shine effect. It helps casting viscous foundations. It improves the gloss, provides silky and non-tacky skin feel. It shows good wetting and dispersion properties too. It helps polymers in powder form to swell more rapidly in water (pre-gel), e.g. xanthan gum, cellulose gum, Aristoflex® AVC at room temperature. It is a good replacement for PEG-8 in tooth paste. Isopentyldiol is eco-friendly and safe to use. Cosmetic applications include deodorants, hair conditioners, hair treatment products, shampoos, skin milk, moisture lotions, body creams & butter, make-up removers, face cleansers, eye & lip care, sun care & after sun creams, tooth pastes, perfumes, eye shadow and moisturizing foundations.
