Inspection body Ecocert has certified Honeywell’s hair and skin care ingredient Asensa NFF 11E for use in natural and organic cosmetics.
Asensa NFF 11E (INCI: Hydrolyzed Corn Starch) is a film-former for the European market made from corn starch derived from non-genetically-modified corn.
It can be dispersed to form a latex, and third-party studies have shown that it performs equally as well as synthetic polymers in hair fixative applications. It can also be used in skin care formulations.
NFF 11E is the first Honeywell Asensa product to be based on renewable ingredients and is ideal for formulations that have a high concentration of renewable ingredient content.
