BASF Care Creations received two BSB Innovation Prizes at in-cosmetics Global 2019.
The company’s Euperlan OP White, an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic opacifiers, took home second place in the “Functionals and Recipients” cosmetics sub-category; its face mask concept was awarded third place in the “Applied Concepts” category.
Euperlan OP White is wax-based, readily biodegradable and cold processable, with a white appearance for surfactant formulations. It is particularly suitable for eco-label-compliant skin and hair cleansing formulations, and complements the company’s current portfolio of pearlizing wax dispersions.
