MOSCOW (MRC) -- Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions (DCIS), a business of The Dow Chemical Company, has announced the launch of two key ingredients for the personal care market in Japan, according to the company's press-release.
The launch of EPITEX 66 Polymer and MoistStar HA+ Moisturizing Technology brings advanced skin and sun care ingredients to Japanese formulators.
"Japan is one of the most advanced global markets for the personal care industry and offers Dow a great opportunity to present some innovative R&D solutions for the market," said Sudhir Shenoy, Asia Pacific Business Director of Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions.
MoistStar HA+ Moisturizing Technology was designed to benefits consumers with longer lasting skin moisturization, and offers formulators ease of processing. In addition to notably improving moisturizing performance, MoistStar HA+ is a liquid and therefore easier to handle and incorporate into skin care formulations than Hyaluronic Acid (HA) powder. Furthermore, an independent lab found its handling to be as easy as conventional HA solutions.
EPITEX 66 Polymer is an emulsion that combines excellent water resistance with more pleasing skin aesthetics, as compared to conventional water resistance technologies. EPITEX 66 Polymer was designed to address low tack to improve the feel on skin when the personal care product is applied. Formulations containing EPITEX 66 Polymer can also incorporate UCON Fluid AP, a chemistry that offers a remarkably soft, smooth emollient feeling, to help further enhance the product’s skin feel.
We remind that, as MRC informed previously, last year Dow Polyurethanes, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, in cooperation with Cannon SpA, announced that PASCAL Polyurethane Insulation Technology for household refrigerators and freezers were developed to retrofit to existing production lines.
Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions develops innovative, sustainable technologies and distinct chemistries that enhance the science of care. The company's technologies can be used in a variety of applications including household and institutional care, personal care and cosmetics, paints and coatings, metalworking fluids, pharmaceuticals, and other industrial segments.
