Ashland has introduced antaron soja glyceride (Proposed INCI: Maleated Soybean Oil Glyceryl/Octyldodecanol Polymer), a nature-derived, biodegradable water-resistant film-former and SPF booster for sun care formulations that also provides transfer resistance for color cosmetics.
Antaron soja glyceride is non-GMO, vegan-suitable, and compatible with organic and inorganic ingredients. Antaron soja is cold-processible, enables clear formulations and has a liquid format for fast incorporation into formulations.
Antaron soja glyceride enables the creation of more natural sun care creams, lotions, gels and color cosmetics, per Ashland. Other key application benefits include:
- Imparts a non-greasy, cushiony skin feel;
- Mineral tolerant; and
- Effective across a wide pH range (4-8).
