Sensient Cosmetic Technologies has launched a line of edible personal care ingredients. The Covagourmet line is a food grade range based on the precise selection of substances derived from natural renewable sources. Four products are offered in the edible line. Natpure Gum (INCI: Caesalpinia spinosa gum (and) Acacia senegal gum) is a thickener for aqueous phases and is based on vegetable gums.

Natpure Cellgum (INCI: Microcrystalline cellulose (and) cellulose gum) is a cellulosic ingredient allowing the formulation of surfactant-free emulsions (pickering) while creating a thixotropic gel that can be adapted to sprayable products.

Natpure Sol (INCI: Glycerin (and) sucrose laurate (and) sucrose dilaurate (and) sucrose trilaurate (and) sorbitol) is a natural solubilizer derived from sugar cane presenting emulsifying properties for o/w emulsions.

And Natpure SF (INCI: Sucrose stearate (and) sucrose distearate) is an emulsifier with a low HLB for w/o emulsions.

According to the company, these four new edible ingredients complete its range of natural dyes to achieve the formulation of original products. The new line also was created in respect to the environment. For more information, visit www.sensient-tech.com.
