Polymeric emulsifier for skin and sun care formulations

CLEVELAND, Ohio –– Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty (LLS Beauty) introduces PemuPur™ START polymer – naturally sensational, simply refreshing.

Consumer priorities on health and sustainability are challenging formulators to develop stable skin and sun care formulations that are naturally derived without sacrificing the refreshing sensory experience.

PemuPur™ START polymer meets consumers’ expectations as a high-performing, natural-derived polymeric emulsifier. Its name promises excellent STA-bility and R-efreshing T-exture, making it a grounded solution to START building oil-in-water emulsions.

PemuPur™ START polymer provides excellent emulsion stabilization at low use levels (0.5-1.0 wt%) and up to 50% oil content, limiting the need for co-emulsifiers. These characteristics, coupled with its limited surface activity, make it ideal for creating mild, fluid and sprayable emulsions suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

PemuPur™ START polymer has a Renewable Carbon Index of 0.96, according to ISO 16128 and It is readily biodegradable (OECD 301F).
