Safic-Alcan's ChemSpec Polymer Additives subsidiary will launch a U.S. cosmetics business September 1, capturing growth in this key market.
The subsidiary has adjusted its portfolio to serve the market, including ingredients such as natural/biotechnological actives, texturizing agents, preservatives, emollients, oils, butters, waxes and resins, surfactants, pigments and pearlescent pigments.
The actives provide anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-pollution, soothing, veinotonic, keratolytic and lipolytic benefits, according to the company. The natural texturizing agents are plant- and algae-derived, while the others are biotechnological or synthetic.
Safic-Alcan is also offering two formulas of peel-off alginate-based masks.
