Nature-derived multifunctional ingredients for self-preserved cosmetics

This is a Past Webinar
Safe and natural cosmetics are trending. The growing interest by consumers makes personal care formulators look progressively after bio-based and sustainable ingredients. In addition, harsh preservative systems became out of fashion. Today’s modern formulations are intrinsically safe thanks to multifunctional ingredients with anti-microbial properties.

In this webinar, you will learn how bio-ingredients developed under green chemistry principles can help to cope with the new market demands and customer focus. Applications of several nature-based multifunctional ingredients will be shown.

Why should you view this webinar?

Through this webinar you can learn about the uses and properties of bio-based ingredients and solutions to protect formulations.

The presenting company Minasolve is most well known for its nature-based variant of the multifunctional ingredient "Pentylene Glycol", which they introduced in 2014 (trade name: Pentiol Green+). This product is made from sugar cane bagasse and corncob waste. In addition to its skin-moisturizing and skin-conditioning properties, Pentiol Green+ also has a broad antimicrobial effect. By combining Pentiol Green+ with other nature-based ingredients in our blends, particularly mild products are obtained, and cost-effectiveness is enhanced at the same time.
