Want to replace polyethylene (PE) beads?

PE beads have come under scrutiny in the past year due to their lack of biodegradability and potential to bio-accumulate. The Sorbosil range from PQ Silicas are an ideal alternative as they have a similar sensory profile without the negative environmental impact. Available in a range of particle sizes and in different colours to suit the requirements of your formulation. A full brochure can be found here.


Don't want to use lanolin?

Lanolin is widely used as a moisturising agent in personal care. As a material derived from sheep's wool it is beginning to fall out of favour within a market that is seeing significant growth in naturally derived materials. 

The Viamerine range from Aldivia are vegetable derived polyglycerides that can be used as direct alternatives to lanolin.

Synthetic preservatives causing you headaches?

Preservatives for most formulators are a necessary evil. If you could guarantee the shelf life of a formulation against bacteria without them then life would be much easier! However as things stand preservatives are needed, and the vast majority are derived from petrochemicals. 

The Salinaturals range from Salicylates & Chemicals use the natural antibacterial properties of essential oils to protect your formulation.
