The Lubrizol Corporation Introduces Avalure Flex-6 Polymer

The Lubrizol Corporation announced the launch of Avalure(TM) Flex-6 Polymer, a new multi-benefit solution for the skin care market. Designed to meet the consumer needs for better hiding power and wear in make-up as well as more uniform coverage, protection and water resistance in sun care and daily skin care products, Avalure Flex-6 polymer offers unique functions such as: Emulsion stabilization, Pigment dispersion, Film formation, Rheology modification. Avalure Flex-6 polymer does all of this without compromising the sensory quality of the product. Key Benefits of Avalure(TM) Flex-6 Polymer: Consistent thickening efficiency across a wide pH range (pH 3-10) and in the presence of some electrolytes, offering the possibility of developing high performance commercial products. Compatibility with high levels of metal oxide pigments, enabling O/W challenging formulations in daily skin care, sun care, color cosmetic and baby care (diaper creams). Unique sensory profile: soft, powdery after feel with comfort. This new polymer has a very positive impact on the emulsion sensory with its silicone-like after feel. Efficient film formation at low use level (1 wt%), allowing for more uniform coverage. In sun protection products it helps to spread the UV filters more evenly on the skin and to cover them under a layer of polymer film, resulting in enhanced water-resistance and improved sun protection with a matte, soft and non-greasy after feel. Its HLB independent emulsification properties (including silicone oils), multi functionality and ease-of-use, enable savings through simplification of formulation (fewer ingredients needed) and manufacturing processes.
