Schercemol™ LL ester yields a light, velvety emolliency to numerous cosmetic formulations such as hand lotions, sunscreens, and lipsticks. It is based on alpha-hydroxy acid and is therefore recommended in skin renewal and cell regeneration applications. Because of its free hydroxyl group, Schercemol LL ester is dispersible in water, permitting its use in bath oil preparations. It is also soluble in alcohol and therefore of value in colognes and aftershaves. It is known to reduce the tackiness in roll-on antiperspirants.
