Oxiteno launches new surfactants for skin care products

Oxiteno increases its portfolio of surfactants for personal care applications and releases a new solution: OXISMOOTH line, conceived mostly to target skin care products.
The new product line contains three different emollient esters – OXISMOOTH CP, OXISMOOTH CO and OXISMOOTH ST – that might have multiple applications on personal care solutions, as it is designed to deliver uniqueness and a pleasant sensorial. The product fits lines that might target specific audiences (men, women and baby), providing solutions for skin, sun and hair care.
The product’s benefits are various, such as the possibility of developing formulations with high spreadability, quick absortion and low tack. Furthermore, this brand new release is preservative free, dermatologically tested, easy to handle and processable under cold conditions. Moreover, the solution is non-occlusive, which guarantees a non-oily skin.
The core competence of OXISMOOTH relies on its efficacy on sun care, obtained from a high Sun Protection Factor (SPF). The solution measures what the products are delivering, apart from providing a pleasant sense – perfect moisturization with a light, natural skin feel with non-oily and dry touch.
Sustainable approach
OXISMOOTH product line is made of 100% renewable sources: Isoamyl Alcohol, which is obtained from sugar cane and other oleochemical derivatives. The solution is raw material assessed as compliant to the COSMOS standard and has many other features: it is also biodegradable, non-phototoxic and non-cytotoxic.
OXISMOOT was developed following a guideline that promotes the substitution of synthetic materials and derivatives. In addition, it also encourages the efficient use of energy, water and packaging, resulting in the development of concentrated and biodegradable products.
