LANXESS showcases extensive portfolio for the cosmetics industry at in-cosmetics Global

Highly effective preservation solutions ensuring the safety and protection of personal care products

  • By ICN Bureau | April 07, 2024

LANXESS will be presenting its comprehensive portfolio of preservatives, multifunctionals, flavors and fragrances for cosmetics and personal care products as well as solutions for oral care at the in-cosmetics Global show in Paris from April 16 to 18. Within its Consumer Protection segment, the specialty chemicals company offers numerous products that ensure the protection and well-being of consumers. The company is one of the world’s leading suppliers of benzoates, phenoxyethanol and other high-quality preservative solutions.

Preservatives from LANXESS are used in leave-on and rinse-off products such as face creams and shampoos, shower gels, deodorants and make-up can be found in many well-known branded products worldwide. The range extends from traditional to nature-identical and natural solutions that are authorized for use under green label certifications, such as the EU Ecolabel, Ecocert, NATRUE, COSMOS, and Nordic Swan.

Demand for milder and more sustainable products is increasing in the cosmetics and personal care market. More and more multifunctional ingredients are being used to provide customers with the best possible formulation support. The aim is to reduce conventional ingredients, strengthen the effectiveness of individual ingredients or even replace them completely. On their own or in combination with multifunctional ingredients, the products cover a broad pH spectrum and also enable the cosmetics and care industry to offer products with pH values above 5.5.

Bettina Blottko, head of the Material Protection Products business unit at LANXESS, says: “Consumers are increasingly aware of what is contained in everyday products and how these ingredients affect their health and the environment. With our broad product portfolio and innovation pipeline, we can offer a wide range of preservation solutions to meet this need. LANXESS has a global network of experts who develop formulations, including the associated microbiological know-how. Coupled with technical service and regulatory expertise, we support our customers’ sustainable growth in such highly regulated markets.”

Purox S Scopeblue is the climate-friendlier alternative to the established product Purox S, the nature-identical and readily biodegradable sodium benzoate. LANXESS uses the Scopeblue brand label to identify its own products whose CO2 footprint is at least 50 percent lower than that of conventional products or which consist of at least 50 percent sustainable raw materials. 

Dr. Michael Zobel, head of the Flavors & Fragrances (F&F) business unit at LANXESS, says: “The newly available Purox S Scopeblue, which is based on renewable raw materials, has a reduced product carbon footprint of up to 100 percent and helps to reduce the overall carbon footprint of personal care products containing our benzoate. With the introduction of ISCC PLUS certified products using the mass balance approach, we are responding to the demand for gentle, effective and environmentally friendly preservatives for the cosmetic and fragrance industries.”
