CLEVELAND, Ohio – April 8, 2022 –Lubrizol Life Science - Beauty (LLS Beauty).  PemuPur™ START polymer, a new polymeric emulsifier, won the Gold Award for innovative functional ingredients at in-cosmetics® Global this week in Paris. The jury recognized ingredients that combine innovative science and product features in a way that demonstrates substantial benefits to manufacturers and to end-users when compared to existing ingredients.

Two other ingredients from Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty were finalists for awards at the show: Resulook™ advanced botanical ingredient was short-listed for the Green Ingredient Award and Telophi™ biotech ingredient was a finalist for innovative active ingredients.

PemuPur™ START polymer provides excellent emulsion stabilization at low use levels (0.5-1.0 wt%) and up to 50% oil content, limiting the need for co-emulsifiers. These characteristics, coupled with its limited surface activity, make it ideal for creating mild, fluid and sprayable emulsions suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
