Sensory innovation was in sight for Elementis this spring.

At in-cosmetics Global, the company debuted three additions to its ingredient portfolio that spanned rheology modifiers and natural talc; one of these new ingredient ranges was put to use in a line of sensorial skin care formulations.

New Ingredients

Bentone Luxe WN—This vegan rheology modifier and emulsifier enables stable emulsions with a variety of textures. The ingredient reportedly imparts a light feel and helps create a quick break sensation. Bentone Luxe WN was shortlisted for in the Innovation Zone - Functional Ingredients category for the 2019 in-cosmetics Global awards. (INCI: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (and) Stearalkonium Hectorite (and) Polyglycerol-3 Diisostearate (and) Polyglycerol-3 Polyricinoleate)

Mondana talc—A clean, natural talc option, recently added to Elementis' portfolio. (INCI: Not Available)

Bentone Hydroclay—A range of naturally sourced and clay-based water-phase rheology modifiers that can thicken water while creating a silky texture. They are also meant to provide thixotropy and suspension control in the aqueous phase. (INCI: Varies)

Sensorial Formulations

Bentone Hydroclay was the basis of four formulations at the Sensory Bar; these include:

Glow Anywhere Mousse—This bouncy mousse is reportedly soft and leaves a golden glow behind on skin.

Cleansing Cherry Jam—With a jam-like texture and velvety skin feel, this cleanser is natural and sulfate-free.

Warm Apple TaffyThis mask has a taffy-like texture, which warms upon application to leave skin reportedly feeling clean and moisturized.
