Natural sensory solution

July 2012

Tego Feel Green from Evonik is a new sensory additive that has a cellulose content of over 99%. The cellulose is sourced from certified, sustainably managed forests. It is made into a highly effective sensory additive – not a thickening agent – without any derivatisation or covalent chemical modification.

Particularly suitable for formulations with a negative sensory profile or high humectant content or indeed formulations in oils, Tego Feel Green improves absorption on the skin and reduces tackiness, greasiness and oiliness. Foregoing synthetic manufacturing processes and additional chemical modifications, and based entirely on renewable raw materials, Tego Feel Green has been developed in full sight of sustainability and natural cosmetics trends. It is especially suited for use in O/W formulations such as emulsions, facial care products, men’s skin care products, serums, sun care products, make-up foundations and deodorants. Given its high efficiency, Tego Feel Green provides excellent results, even with low usage concentrations. It is defined by further special properties that make it easier to process. The odourless, white soft powder contains particularly small, smooth particles with an average size of around 8 m that remain as such in the formulation. The additive can be combined with other powders or pigments and has no – or only minimal – influence on the viscosity of the overall formulation. New Tego Feel Green is Evonik’s answer to the sensory challenges of successful skin care products. The natural way to a balanced texture that provides an outstanding after-feel.
