If the consumers choose a cosmetic product for its functionality or its promise of effectiveness, they will particularly be enticed by the pleasure it gives them; and this pleasure is directly related to the textural properties of the product. Indeed, they will give the cosmetic product, its structure, its rheological properties (viscosity, lubricity, etc.) and its performance on the skin when applied (ease of spreading, flow, softness, etc.). Texturing agents therefore have a major role in the success of your cosmetic formulation.

These performances can be provided by emulsifying, emollient, thickening, foaming or dispersing functions. They can also contribute towards hydrating and nourishing of the skin. They
are generally made of polymers (polyacrylates, polysaccharides, gums, etc.) or lipid derivatives (oils, esters, wax derivatives, etc.).
They are used in most cosmetic products: Shower gels, shampoos, styling gels, styling foams, face and body creams and sunscreens.

We offer different classes of texturing agents, to help you in your formulation work:

  • Natural waxes
    • Phytowax, a range of natural vegetable waxes of Olive origin, for exquisite sensations
  • Natural alternatives to Vaseline
