Abstract: Zenitech has added an emollient butter to its Zenifresh line that can be used in hair, skin and sun care products.

Zenitech has added an emollient butter to its Zenifresh line that can be used in hair, skin and sun care products. Lavender Butter (INCI: Octyldodecanol (and) Beeswax (and) Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil) can also serve as a film-former.

The butter's natural claim is based on its combination of cold pressed natural lavender oil, NF-quality, white beeswax and naturally derived octyl dodecanol. In addition to is recommended application in skin care, hair care and sun care, the butter, which is available as a creamy paste, can also be formulated in color cosmetics and cuticle care products. It is recommended at 1–10%.

The butter is reach compliant and is approved for use in japan. It is dispersible in ethanol (95%), cyclomethicone, dimethicone, castor oil, safflower oil and eutanol G at 50°C and at RT. Although it is dispersible in butylene glycol at RT it is insoluble in butylene glycol at 50°C.
