Dow Launches New Natural Preservatives for Personal Care at in-cosmetics Asia
At in-cosmetics Asia 2018, Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of DowDuPont Specialty Products, launches two new product lines within its NEOLONE™ personal care preservatives portfolio: NEOLONE™ Bio, based on naturally derived Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate (LAE®) and NEOLONE™ PH Phenoxyethanol blends.
Overcoming Personal Care Industry Challenges
Both product lines reflect Dow’s dedication to helping formulators, manufacturers and brand owners overcome the challenges of the modern personal care industry.
Wayne Ashton, Global Business Director for home and personal care at DuPont Industrial Biosciences, said:
“Today, customer preferences and purchase decisions are more calculated than ever before, and closely aligned with health, wellness, and natural beauty trends. Brand owners are looking for ingredients that satisfy consumer demands while maintaining desirable performance and have a positive health and safety profile. Our new NEOLONE™ preservatives help our customers ensure that their personal care formulations are safe, efficacious and remain free from microbial growth – ultimately helping win brand trust."
Naturally Derived Preservative
NEOLONE™ Bio products are based on the broad-spectrum, naturally derived personal care preservative Ethyl Lauroyl Arginate (LAE®). LAE® is non-sensitizing, non-irritating and readily bio-degradable, which makes it ideal for leave-on and rinse-off and some oral care applications
LAE® is listed on Annex V of the European Commission Regulation and Annex VI of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive.
“Our NEOLONE™ Bio preservatives are designed for maximum efficiency and ease of use,” said Bahar Azimipour, global marketing manager for Dow Microbial Control. “Customers trust in our product innovation, regulatory knowledge and technical support, and can rest assured knowing that our products deliver the desired attributes.”
Dow Microbial Control has signed an exclusive supply agreement for LAE® with Barcelona based LAMIRSA who owns the intellectual property around manufacturing and use of LAE® in personal care products.
For Both Rinse-off and Leave-on Applications
NEOLONE™ PHCG and NEOLONE™ PHBC are broad-spectrum preservatives specifically designed for rinse-off and leave-on applications, such as face masks, creams, lotions, shampoo and wipes. Together, these innovative blends boast high-performance features for mild personal care formulations, including:
- Optimized ratio of ingredients for cost efficiency
- Efficacy at a broad range of PH
- Low odor
