The company devoted to the sector of the distribution of prime matter chemists in Spain has presented the dossier of its preservatives, humectants, and solvent. They have decided to begin 2023, centering in the products that compose to the following categories:

  • Preservative boosters: these are necessary in cosmetic products to prevent the growth of bacteria, molds, and yeast such as lipsticks for example. This allows safe usage for the customer and improves the longevity of the product.⁣
  • Humectantes: used in aqueous systems or in emulsions to retain water to avoid the drying of the product and are capable of retaining fragrances on the skin and preventing the loss of perfume in products.⁣
  • Solvents: excellent active agents for deodorants that inhibit enzymatic decomposition of components of sweat, help in the better dispersal of insoluble organic UV filters used in modern-day sun creams, and are the preferred film-strengthening agents in high-grade hairspray and nail polish.⁣

Inside this family of products, Special Chemicals stands out as a butylen glycol, that belongs to the family of humectants. It is a dispersant of essential oils and pigments and acts as a clarifier in formulas with surfactants and at the same time has a delicate moisturizing action. Also, it can be employed as an antibacterial agent in cosmetic preparations and among its many benefits we can find it moisturizing, has good antimicrobial properties and it has excellent solubilizing properties. Thus, it is apt for cosmetic formulations associated with skin care, solar protection, nails care, or fragrances.

Another activity that presents us with 'Special Chemicals', is propanediol. It presents an ingredient 'multipurpose': emollient, humectant, booster, solvent, viscosity enhancer, and carrier for actives. The benefits of this active ingredient are that it is 100% from renewable sources, GMO-free, supposes a magnificent reinforcement of the systems preservatives, improves moisturizing efficiency, and the absence of irritation of the skin. As it indicates Special Chemicals, stands out also by its 'multifunction': emollient, humectant, solvent, booster...
