Curated for Personal Care: The perfect balance between product performance and naturality

Many of today’s consumers are demanding greater transparency in the products they purchase, including knowing where their products come from and what their ingredients are. SYMPARE MES is a sulphate-free anionic surfactant naturally made from plant source for the personal care categories.

SYMPARE MES has a high natural origin index and is defined as derived natural ingredient according to ISO 16128. It is a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based surfactants in cleansing product formulations. SYMPARE MES is also listed in the CleanGredients database as it meets the EPA's Safer Choice Standard.

SYMPARE MES was evaluated with Epiderm Skin Irritation Test, which utilises the 3D in-vitro reconstructed human epidermal (RHE) model, and is categorised as MILD comparing to the selected benchmarks.
