Transforming texture during application can provide sensory cues to consumers. Discover our first oil gel prototypes for hair care based an innovative emulsification technology platform, Miracare® OGE. Such technology is successfully used to formulate pre-wash treatments for all hair types, as well as the leave-on serums for e.g. multicultural hair.

Skin Caring Benefits:

Oil gel facial cleansers made with Miracare® OGE leave behind skin that is moisturized and smooth to the touch.

The formula with Miracare® OGE respects the skin barrier better than the premium commercial benchmark. The skin cleansed with the commercial product has shown a slight increase in TEWL five minutes after washing, evidence of a disruption of the skin barrier.  Whereas, the Solvay formulation show near-zero difference between baseline TEWL and five minutes after cleansing.

Two hours after washing, the TEWL of skin cleansed with either formula shows improvement. However, the improvement in TEWL of the skin cleansed with the Solvay formula is significantly better.
