The brands Purolan® and Solbrol® represent LANXESS Distribution’s offer to the Personal Care and Flavors & Fragrances industries.
The high-quality raw materials are characterized by high purity and high safety to meet the increasingly strict legal safety requirements and regulations. They can be used for a wide range of cosmetic applications
from skin and hair care to make-up products and are widely used in many consumer products of the world’s leading cosmetics brands.
Isoparaffins are highly-branched, saturated hydrocarbons. They offer favorable skin feel, which makes them ideal alternatives for silicones. Due to their very high purity they are dermatologically safe, colorless and odorless. Isoparaffins are suitable for a broad range of cosmetic applications.
Glycols Glycols are multifunctional ingredients that, amongst others, improve skin feel and emulsion stability. They are also powerful synergists that enhance the efficacy of cosmetic preservatives.
The range of esters is suitable for various applications, among them deodorants and nail polishes. They can also be used for the pH stabilization of cosmetic formulations.
Cosmetic preservatives of the Solbrol® brand offer protection against a broad spectrum of microbes. The range also includes 100% renewable blends, suitable for protecting leave-on and rinse-off formulations as well as wet wipes.
Flavors & Fragrances The F&F portfolio includes both flavor compounds and formulation ingredients.
Flavor compounds Flavor compounds are used for their own aroma and contribution to the final scent or taste of a product.
Formulation ingredients The formulation products are used in the final manufacturing step during blending. They are auxiliary products, usually with no inherent aroma and comprise solvents, carriers and stabilizers.
