Specialty Emollients for Hair and Skin Care
Specialty esters that protect the skin barrier and nourish the hair fiber
Emollients are key ingredients of skin and hair care products. They provide a protective barrier that contributes to moisturizing, softening, and smoothing the skin and hair. Emollients impart gloss and softness to hair with styling, leave-on and rinse-off conditioning formulations. Emollients also contribute to the in-use sensory properties of formulated products.
