Jungbunzlauer offers COSMOS-approved moisturizing solutions for rinse-off products

Jungbunzlauer has expanded its offering for natural moisturizing solutions into the bath and shower segment: in vivo studies have recently confirmed the powerful moisturizing benefits of sodium lactate, potassium lactate, ERYLITE® and calcium lactate gluconate for rinse-off products.

Supporting key trends in the bath and shower product category
The trend calling for natural cosmetic products is stronger than ever. At the same time, consumers have high expectations for the performance of bath and shower products. They expect additional benefits like good skin moisturization. Application tests over a period of 14 days of daily use have demonstrated the superior performance of sodium lactate, potassium lactate, calcium lactate gluconate and ERYLITE® in comparison to glycerin, the moisturizer commonly used in rinse-off products.

Highest ecolabel standard for the new moisturizing solutions
All these powerful moisturizers are naturally occurring, contain only non-GMO ingredients, are produced by fermentation, and based on renewable sources. Just recently, Jungbunzlauer was granted COSMOS* approval for these ingredients.

Unique value proposition due to proven performance and
Our products’ powerful moisturization combined with having earned COSMOS, the most stringent ecolabel certification, makes our solutions for the bath and shower segment stand out from the competition.
