Speciality chemical maker Sonneborn has brought to market SonneNatural NXG, a 100% plant-based emollient said to be ideal for balm applications.
The US firm says its firmest plant-based emollient enhances the formulation of lip care and personal care products due to its sensory properties.
The product’s naturally-derived firm texture reduces the amount of thickener or wax required in the end formulation for anhydrous formulas, it adds.
SonneNatural NXG also offers a unique combination of properties, including non-greasy application, excellent moisture retention and an occlusive afterfeel that leaves skin feeling soft and luxurious.
“Designed as an emollient to promote sustained moisturization, SonneNatural NXG has been developed with a low odour, excellent stability and unmatched emolliency, enabling it to formulate truly superior personal care products, including lip balm, lipstick, body lotion and facial scrub,” said a spokeswoman.
“Specially developed with an occlusive agent to help stabilize cosmetic formulas, the product is a perfect plant-based alternative to lanolin or other animal-based emollients and means that formulators no longer need to settle for inferior substitutes,” she added.
