At in-cosmetics in Hamburg, Dr. Straetmans is launching the second generation of PEG-free solubilizers. Symbio solv clear (INCI: Caprylyl/Capryl Glycosides (and) Water (aqua) (and) Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate (and) Polyglyceryl-5 Oleate (and) Glyceryl Caprylate (and) Citric acid) allows formulators to create clear and alcohol-free, water-based personal care products.
The ingredient is able to solubilize perfumes and essential oils without using alcohol. The solubilizer is derived from natural vegetable sources, making it suitable for certified natural cosmetic concepts. The product is suitable for tonic and water-based gel products, as it can be processed under room temperature. Finally, the product is low odor.
