Structuring agents

Our structuring agents offer good crystallization behavior and a choice of melting profiles to help you achieve precisely the texture and consistency that consumers want from skin care and make-up products.

Based on vegetable fats, these triglyceride ingredients are designed to show good compatibility with other cosmetic ingredients when structuring all types of emulsions and anhydrous formulations, particularly decorative cosmetics such as lipsticks and pencils.
