Stephenson Personal Care launches innovative new range of naturally derived ingredients

Stephenson Personal Care pioneer to launch 9 new naturally derived esters at In-Cosmetics Global 2018. (Updated February, 2019)

Stephenson is launching a unique range of naturally derived monoglyceryl and polyglyceryl esters – exclusively at this year’s In-Cosmetics Global exhibition, taking place next week, 17th -19th of April, in Amsterdam.

Natural and sustainable ingredients are key drivers in the global personal care and cosmetics market. With the market’s estimated valued at $350 billion and of that, the natural sector growing at an annual rate of 15%, pressure has been mounting from consumers for the industry to clean up its environmental act.

To tap into this market, Stephenson Personal Care launched 2 natural ingredients in 2016, which have proven to be hugely successful. This combined with increasing trends and new product development allowed us to add 7 new ingredients to the range.

It is important to note that we have also changed the names of the existing products Durosoft SF and Durosoft PK-SG for consistency within the range.

Durosoft® SF is now known as Durosoft® PG4-O and Durosoft® PK-SG is referred to as Durosoft® PG4L-SG. The physical form and INCI of these products remains the same, it is only the name that has changed.

DUROSOFT® range of ingredients - emulsifiers, emollients, thickeners and solubilisers - all of which are developed to provide natural alternatives to synthetic ingredients currently found in many cosmetic and personal care products. This diverse product range also includes natural and RSPO Segregated (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certified ingredients covering a wide range of HLB values and can be used in combination with each other to achieve the specific required HLB of a formulation. All of the ingredients are skin friendly, PEG and EO free with no deleterious effect on temperature sensitive ingredients.
