Innovations in Clean, Effective and Safe Sun Care [sample request]


In recent years, consumers’ insistence on clean beauty products has intensified. Add to that the ongoing proliferation of sun care regulations limiting permissible UV filters and the accelerating popularity of mineral sunscreens, and you can understand Hallstar Beauty’s excitement over our new line of all-natural sun care ingredients. We will begin our naturals expansion in summer 2021 with the launch of multifunctional SolaPure™ Glo [INCI: Vegetable Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract].

In developing SolaPure™ Glo, Hallstar Beauty was inspired and guided by nature—and more specifically by the inherent culinary, beauty and wellness benefits of turmeric. The curcuminoids found in turmeric plants boast anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-microbial properties, and have even been known to reduce the ROS production that leads to oxidative skin damage. SolaPure™ Glo leverages curcumin’s benefits to improve sun protection’s SPF and PFA performance, control hyperpigmentation and promote overall skin wellbeing.

But clean sunscreens require more than just effective UV filters and emollients. Hallstar has always recognized the impact that performant emulsifiers can have on successful sun care formulations. Functional bases form fluid (even sprayable) sun care lotions, enhancing the texture and viscosity of formulation and improving emulsion stability, sensorial profile and dermatological compatibility. 

Over the years, Hallstar Beauty has launched some of the world’s most successful emulsifiers, including many that are natural or natural-derived. The fatty acid composition of these functional ingredients and their ability to generate liquid crystal structures which biomimic the strateum corneum organization of human skin allow for light, nourishing products with exceptional sensoriality. 

Our newest cold process emulsifier, Olivem® 2090 [INCI: Polyglyceryl-4 Olivate/Polyricinoleate], is a water-in-oil, natural-derived ingredient that is especially well-suited to sun care. In addition to improving spreadability and enabling an excellent after-feel, Olivem® 2090 allows a reduction in solvent quantity and makes it easier to formulate with inorganic UV filters and powders as well as organic sun filters because of its all-natural powder dispersion properties. Its simple emulsification process can be achieved with either cold or hot process, making Olivem® 2090 very versatile.

The positive impact of emulsifiers like Olivem® 2090 on sensoriality and spreadability is critical to successful sun care formulations. After all, the safest and most effective sunscreen is the one you are willing to use regularly. 

Olivem® 2090 and SolaPure™ Glo can proudly take their place next to the other natural ingredients in Hallstar Beauty’s portfolio of clean sun care solutions. The functional and active naturals produced by our laboratories can contribute pleasant skin-feel and emolliency to formulations as well as additional claims like anti-blue light protection, anti-redness and free radical-scavenging. Together, these innovative products enable the green and safe sun care solutions customers want.
