SNF launches Flocare multifunctional polymer at in-cosmetics Global
Ingredients player SNF has chosen to launch its Flocare Nat 132 multifunctional polymer at this week’s in-cosmetis Global, being held at the Port de Versailles Expo in Paris.

France-based SNF says the polymer has been design to create multifunctional skin care formulation that are targeting a high level of natural ingredients.

Specifically, the research and development team at the company say that the ingredient targets the new minimalist formulation trends, with a goal of achieving high Natural Index requirements.

A naturally-derived polymer

The new SNF polymer has been developed from a natural origin and is intended as a primary emulsifier in skin care formulations, which is claimed to result in a soft after-feel for specialty creams and lotions.

The ingredient was developed using 100% biodegradable vegetable oil, and using a biodegradable bio-based glucose-derived surfactant that achieves a 67% Natural Index or Natural Origin Index, which is regulated by ISO 16128 Standard, and it is also vegan.

The development team at SNF also state that because only very small doses of the polymer is required, formulations can be produced in such a way that they can be very close to a 100% Natural Index.

It is also well suite to skin care creams containing up to 30% oil, while it could also allow for the manufacture of emulsions by cold process, adding to formulation ease and cost effectiveness.

Watch out for demonstrations at in-cosmetics Global

SNF will be demonstrating both the technical applications and the after-feel of the Florcare Nat 132 in a variety of concept formulations at the in-cosmetics Global event.

The company will be at booth number N52, which is part of the Cosmetics Valley pavilion, which forms a dominant position on the nearly 11,000 square metres of show floor space.

Members of the company’s technical sales team will be on hand to demonstrate the new ingredient and to answer formulators questions about its applications and how to make the most of this versatile polymer.
