CITROFOL® & ERYLITE® - New applications in Personal Care

In the recent years a clear trend could be observed in the personal care industry: consumers have a clear preference for natural products. For the development of personal care products in this segment, Jungbunzlauer offers a wide range of naturally-sourced ingredients which are based on corn or sugar-beets. These raw materials are transformed via fermentation as well as clean and authorised processes into valuable ingredients. New evaluations with CITROFOL®, our versatile citrate based organic esters, found that these products are excellent medium spreading emollients for creams, gels and lotions imparting a pleasant silky skin feeling. Outstanding solubility properties enable highly concentrated and stable solutions of even difficultly UV-A filters.

ERYLITE® is a naturally occurring polyalcohol, based on a natural yeast fermentation process and it can be considered natural. ERYLITE® Erythritol, approved by INCI as a moisturiser and humectans, is particularly useful for creams and lotions. According to studies conducted by Jungbunzlauer, the use of ERYLITE® can increase the level of skin moisture by up to 26%. The studies further revealed interesting synergies when ERYLITE® is used together with Glycerin. The technical papers for both products can be downloaded here:
