DuPont™ Hytrel® RS delivers all of the benefits of Hytrel®, yet it contains up to 60 percent renewably sourced materials from biomass, making it an excellent product for applications demanding renewably sourced options

FMC Corporation


Applications: Sun Care, Skin Care

Product Families: Stabilizers, Rheology Modifiers, Other Functional Additives

INCI Name: Cellulose, Cellulose Gum, Microcrystalline Cellulose



Applications: Skin Care

INCI Name: Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate

End Uses: Rinse Off Products, Anti-Aging Products

The Hyaluronic acid line for the ultimate beauty boost. Hyaluronic acid, also referred to in skincare as hyaluronate or HA, is a water-loving polysaccharide already present in the skin. With age, hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases quite sharply, resulting in a loss of hydration, volume and plumpness. Lines and wrinkles also appear, and skin is left looking dull and lackluster. Usually, when hyaluronic acid is added to skincare products, its humectant properties draw moisture into the skin, helping to combat dryness and dullness. What many people don’t realize is that hyaluronic acid comes in various molecular sizes. Larger molecules stay on the surface and give the skin a ‘dewy’ look, while smaller molecules penetrate deeper into the skin to deliver their hydration benefits.
