COSMACOL ELI (C12-13 Alkyl Lactate) A Global Standard as total quality improver in wash-off toiletries


Looking at the new trend in the cosmetic field, there is one point coming immediately out: in order to be attractive for
formulators, ingredients have firstly to be effective. Indeed, toiletries are less and less cleaning products, and becoming everyday
beauty recipes.
As described herein after, COSMACOL ELI (C12-13 Alkyl Lactate) is really a valuable ingredient for wash-off formulations, and can
be considered as a Global Standard as total quality improver in wash-off toiletries.
Viscosity is one of the most important commercial parameters in toiletries, not only because a viscous product is easier to use, but
also because a creamy texture makes the product more attractive for the consumer. At the same time, toiletries should also be
smooth on the skin, in particular baby care and atopic formulations.
