Boldly Bursting Beyond Bio-based

This is a Past Webinar

TEXTURLUX® personal care additives are high bio-based specialty polymers that enable the formulator to boldly burst beyond just bio-based. Until now, formulations with a natural positioning had to make compromises regarding aesthetics, stability, and performance. Consumers have come to believe that products with a high plant-based content are better for them and the environment. What they do wish is that these naturally positioned products were of better quality and consistency.

This presentation will demonstrate the power of the TEXTURLUX® Stabil, Resist, Rheo, Hold, and Feel to transform mediocre formulations into spectacular while accommodating consumers’ natural inclinations. A range of formulation concepts will be explored. These will include products for sulfate free hair cleansing and styling as well as exceptional products for pampering and protecting the skin. Even without the high bio-based claim, these formulations will be loved (and purchased over and over) by consumers.
