25th anniversary celebrated

Symrise introduced the cosmetic raw material Hydrolite 5 back in 1992. Hydrolite 5 is pentylene glycol, a 1,2alkanediol that had a big impact on the market of cosmetic ingredients. The versatile substance is well suited for broad use in cosmetic products.

Hydrolite 5 hydrates the skin and boosts the performance of active ingredients. Following the motto “less is more,” it enhances modern recipes. Its multifunctional properties also benefit the solubilising and emulsifying characteristics of cosmetic ingredients with minimal effort. Combined with antimicrobial agents, it supports modern product protection. 

Dr Gerhard Schmaus, vice president Global Innovation in the Cosmetic Ingredients Division said: “We are proud to have brought such a versatile and effective cosmetic ingredient to the market so early. This success drives us to keep working on modern variations and applications of Hydrolite 5 for our customers and consumers.”

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this multifunctional ingredient, the  Symrise application technologists developed original and trendy formulations in an internal contest. The winner of the contest was the ‘Illuminating Snow Mask’. With a texture as soft as snow, the mask refreshes, moisturises and protects the face within a few minutes – creating relaxing, comforting moments.
