With two new natural raw materials Cosphatec GmbH, as an expert in natural preservatives, now an even more comprehensive portfolio COSMOS- and NATRUE- compliant raw materials. The two new raw materials offer comprehensive application possibilities in skin and hair care.
Cosphaderm® E NGM natural is a COSMOS-approved liquid lysolecithin from soybeans. Lysolecithin is an enzymatically modified derivative of lecithin from which a fatty acid has been split off. This offers improved emulsifying and dispersing properties in aqueous environments and thus a higher waterbinding capacity. Due to their strong hydrophilic character, lysolecithins are ideal co-emulsifiers forO/W emulsions with high water content.
In addition to its function as a co-emulsifier, Cosphaderm® E NGM natural also contributes to a better combability of the hair in conditioners and to a light and silky skin feeling in leave-on formulations.
LWith Cosphaderm® PA-12, there is a new active, or more precisely a new chelator in the portfolio of the Hamburg-based expert for natural raw materials. It is a powder product consisting of the sodium salt of phytic acid, which acts as a strong natural chelating agent and is effective in a wide pH range.
Cosphaderm® PA-12 is derived from the soaking water of corn bran, and is completely natural. Like other chelating agents, sodium phytate can contribute to preservation strategies by sequestering physiologically important metal ions. Its chelating properties also provide an antioxidant function by preventing the formation of reactive oxygen species while reducing the discolouration of cosmetic products.
