These ingredients can be used in combination with each other to create various skin care formulations.

Texturizing Agent

Vegecare TXT (INCI: Glyceryl Isostearate (and) Caprylic/Capric Glycerides (and) Octyldodecanol) is a multifunctional, nature-based alternative to other texturizing and structuring agents. When combined with sodium stearate, it can form a variety of textures and product forms.

According to the company, by changing the ratios of the active and sodium stearate, formulators can create a variety of formulations from a soft or hard solid, to a semi-solid balm or scrub base, in a non-aqueous system. When creating a stick or gel balm, its clarity can be formulated to be clear to opaque.

7-in-1 Moisturizer

Actique Hyal Matrix (INCI: Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer (and) Sodium Hyaluronate (and) Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate (and) Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate (and) Hyaluronic Acid (and) Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans (and) Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid (and) Water (Aqua)) fits seven different active components into one skin ingredient, the company reports. The active imparts extensive hydration deep into the skin and intense, long-term moisturization from the hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans. The active is said to boost formulations for layered skin benefits.

Creamy Lather

The newest additions to the company’s Aminosyl product range, glycinates are mild anionic surfactants, yet they offer a rich foam and creamy lather. The ingredients can be used as a primary moisturizing surfactant, reportedly leaving the skin feeling refreshed and soft.
