CLEVELAND, Ohio, January, 2024 – Lubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) introduces Sensomer™ Tara polymer, a multifunctional, biodegradable natural film former and thickener with excellent sensory and synergistic behavior with other thickeners. Flexible by nature, it enhances the consumer sensory experience in skin care, hair care and hair color applications.
Sensomer™ Tara polymer has the ability to reach viscosity of 40,000* mPa∙s*, enabling creation of high-viscosity formulations for a thicker, creamier and silkier feel in beauty formulations, including moisturizers, sunscreens, hair conditioners, styling products and color treatments.
In skin care applications, Sensomer™ Tara polymer has a silky feel with no drag or stickiness, while its creamy texture provides good pickup with no stringiness. A blind test** revealed a perception of the polymer being softer and less sticky during application, with reduced pilling in afterfeel. It also has a synergy with Kelco-Care™ diutan gum that increases the yield value, leading to robust emulsion stabilization and higher viscosity.
When added to conditioners and treatments, Sensomer™ Tara polymer brings conditioning benefits to the fiber, while providing a smooth and easy to spread texture. In styling applications, it shows better curl retention and better smoothness feel than guar gum. In addition, it has anti-pollution properties, protecting the fiber against particle adhesion. Finally, in coloration it enables no-drip rheology for a better consumer experience.
Sensomer™ Tara polymer is COSMOS approved, vegan suitable and microbiome friendly. It is also readily biodegradable (according to OECD 301F), NOC 100% (according to ISO16128) and obtained by a 100% mechanical process undertaken on the Tara endosperm, giving it a high-sustainability profile.
