The Lubrizol Corporation announces the launch of Avalure Flex-6 Polymer, a new multi-benefit solution for the skin care market. Designed to meet the consumer needs for better hiding power and wear in make-up as well as more uniform coverage, protection and water resistance in sun care and daily skin care products, Avalure Flex-6 polymer offers unique functions such as:
- Emulsion stabilization
- Pigment dispersion
- Film formation
- Rheology modification
Avalure Flex-6 polymer does all of this without compromising the sensory quality of the product.
Key Benefits of Avalure(TM) Flex-6 Polymer
Consistent thickening efficiency across a wide pH range (pH 3-10) and in the presence of some electrolytes, offering the possibility of developing high performance commercial products.
Compatibility with high levels of metal oxide pigments, enabling O/W challenging formulations in daily skin care, sun care, color cosmetic and baby care (diaper creams).
Unique sensory profile: soft, powdery after feel with comfort. This new polymer has a very positive impact on the emulsion sensory with its silicone-like after feel.
Efficient film formation at low use level (1 wt%), allowing for more uniform coverage. In sun protection products it helps to spread the UV filters more evenly on the skin and to cover them under a layer of polymer film, resulting in enhanced water-resistance and improved sun protection with a matte, soft and non-greasy after feel.
Its HLB independent emulsification properties (including silicone oils), multifunctionality and ease-of-use (easy-to-disperse and cold processable), enable savings through simplification of formulation (fewer ingredients needed) and manufacturing processes.
Transfer-resistance and water-resistance in color cosmetic applications resulting in a long-lasting beautifying effect.
Every step of the way, Lubrizol walks hand-in-hand with customers through the process of turning their ideas into reality by offering them innovative technologies, an overview of the and fast service.
