Aprinnova Rolls Out Data, Resources to Replace D5 in APs


As personal care brands replace D5 in products, in response to regulatory restrictions and consumer demand, Aprinnova presents new data on how its Neossance Hemisqualane (INCI: C13-15 Alkane) can do just that—with performance equal to silicones.

In a panelist study, 12 subjects compared antiperspirant formulations with Neossance Hemisqualane and D5, and evaluated the formulas. Results indicated they were perceived as to equal in immediate after-feel and after-feel 15 min later. In addition, a consumer study of 60 individuals confirmed sensory equivalent in parameters such as gloss, wetness, amount of residue, slip and residue thickness. In addition to this data, Aprinnova offers new resources to help formulators develop D5-free antiperspirants.
