Symrise launches multifunctional stabilizer for skin and hair care

Related tags Symrise

Germany-based ingredients provider Symrise has launched a new stabiliser that can be used in a very wide range of formulations to bring about a host of functions.

Called SymSave H, the ingredient is said to be nature-identical and acts as an anti-oxidant, as well as having soothing, emulsion stabilizing and preservative boosting properties that make it highly flexible.

"Launches of new ingredients that are designed to protect cosmetic formulations are rare. Together with its unique, versatile profile, this makes SymSave H a real innovation in this area,"​ said Dr. Ravi Pillai, global product director Life Essentials at Symrise.

Ingredient developed to both protect and stabilize formulations

According to the Symrise research and development team the ingredient was developed to meet cosmetic formulators who are struggling with the challenge of protecting and stabilizing formulations for products such as SPF sunscreens, non-ionic emulsions, shampoos and shower gels.

As well as the multifunctional properties, the ingredient has also been developed to meet the ever-present budget restrictions that formulators face, being priced as an ‘affordable solution’, according to the company.

It is also appropriate for milder cosmetics that require high levels of preservation, suggesting it would even be appropriate for a range of baby care products.

FEM/GRAS listed as nature-identical

Also, the developers say that the fact that it is FEM/GRAS listed as a nature-identical, this also makes it appropriate for a wider range of hair care and skin care products targeting the fast growing natural market.

“We want to offer our customers an ingredient that allows them to formulate products that are well protected, milder, and thus skin-friendly,”​ added Dr. Pillai.

“We realize the demand for such products and will continue our efforts in the search for novel ingredients thus underlining our innovative strength".

Symrise invests in product innovation

Symrise’s latest innovation has been born from a concerted effort to invest in R&D and boost its product roll-out.  In April of this year the company officially opened its research and development facility in Holzminden, Germany, as part of this effort.

The new facility, which is attached to the group’s headquarters, now serves as the company’s two primary business divisions – scent & care and flavour & nutrition - with the facility opening up for business at the end of last week.

The company says it invested a total of €10m in the construction of the facility, which is part of an annual budget in research and development that currently runs at €100m.
