To ensure better performance &/or greener profiles, it is often required to replace solvents in your cosmetic formulations. Finding a replacement is very challenging and often time-consuming! This is especially true when a 1-on-1 replacement is not possible.

In this video, you will learn how HSP can efficiently cater to all these challenges through a practical example. See how you can quickly find alternatives to acetone (skin- & eye-irritant, flammable, strong odor...) for nail polish removal. HSP can also help you go further in enhancing the nail varnish removal performance with a better selection of ideal solvent blends.
