      Cosphaderm® Sodium pAS natural

      Cosphaderm® Sodium pAS natural is the sodium salt of plant-derived anisic acid. Due to its gentle and pleasant odour, Cosphaderm® Sodium pAS natural can be used as a masking agent to cover undesired odours from other ingredients. Another core property of sodium anisate is the strong antimicrobial efficacy against yeasts and moulds at pH values below 6.0. The big advantage of sodium anisate is its superior water-solubility, which makes this product even easier to incorporate into cosmetic formulations than anisic acid.

      Cosphaderm® Sodium LAAS

      Cosphaderm® Sodium LAAS is a white powder comprising a solid mixture of sodium levulinate and sodium anisate. This blend displays skin conditioning and masking properties as well as a broad antimicrobial efficacy. The corresponding acids of both salts display a strong combined antimicrobial efficiency against bacteria, yeasts and moulds. Accordingly, Cosphaderm® Sodium LAAS can ensure a formulation’s microbiological stability as a stand-alone solution without the use of traditional Preservatives. The optimal pH range for Cosphaderm® Sodium LAAS is between 5.3 and 6.0 to keep antimicrobial activity and solubility in perfect balance. This makes it a perfect choice for formulations at skin pH.

      Cosphaderm® Hexiol

      Cosphaderm® Hexiol is a pure, transparent and colourless glycol. Two vicinal OH-groups and a short carbon chain allow unlimited water-solubility. This property is strongly relevant to its most common cosmetic use as a moisturizer and Humectant for both skin care and hair care formulations. Static light scattering experiments have shown that Cosphaderm® Hexiol can also be used to stabilize o/w emulsions by droplet size reduction. Another core property of 1,2-hexanediol is its pH-independent antimicrobial activity. It further shows remarkable synergistic effects in combination with other antimicrobial substances, making it possible to minimize the total amount of combined preserving agents.

      Cosphaderm® AP

      Cosphaderm® AP is the lipophilic ester of ascorbic acid and palmitic acid. The palmityl ester possesses improved skin penetration and stability properties compared to ascorbic acid. As an established vitamin C derivative it can be used in skin whitening approaches. The main application of ascorbyl palmitate is to act as a radical scavenger and stop oxidative radical chain reactions or even regenerate depleted antioxidants. By this means, Cosphaderm® AP achieves protection of unsaturated fat and oil components on its own or in synergy with other antioxidants like tocopherols or rosemary extract.

      Cosphaderm® E NGM natural

      Cosphaderm® E NGM natural is a COSMOS-approved fluid lysolecithin derived from soybeans. Lysolecithin is an enzymatically modified derivative of lecithin from which one fatty acid has been removed. This results in increased emulsifying and dispersion properties in aqueous media leading to greater water-binding capacity. Due to their more hydrophilic character, lysolecithins are ideal co-emulsifiers for o/w emulsions with high water content. Beyond the co-emulsifier function, lysolecithin contributes to better hair combability in conditioners and a light and silky skin sensation in leave-on formulations.

      Cosphaderm® SF-S organic

      Cosphaderm® SF-S organic is an organic, standardized fluid lecithin derived from sunflower oil by supercritical CO2 extraction. The naturally occurring ratio between phospholipids and glycosides typically found in sunflower is retained. Cosphaderm® SF-S organic is a natural co-emulsifier highly suitable for forming w/o emulsions.
      Lecithins possess skin conditioning properties. They are able to penetrate into the skin, where they can bind water and act as a moisturizer. Additionally, they can arrange in lamellar structures mimicking skin layers. Those structures can be incorporated into the skin barrier to stabilize and regenerate the skin.
      Finally, Cosphaderm® SF-S organic has a refatting effect for a smooth skin sensation.

      Cosphaderm® SF-75H

      Cosphaderm® SF-75H is a fractionated and hydrogenated de-oiled sunflower lecithin in powdered form with a phosphatidylcholine content exceeding 70%. The hydrogenation of double bonds of the fatty acids provides greater oxidation stability and much better emulsifying and dispersion properties in aqueous media compared to common fractionated lecithin. In addition, Cosphaderm® SF-75H is a great choice for forming micelles and liposomes since the structure of hydrogenated lecithin facilitates more compact and stable interfaces. Finally, it is an excellent co-emulsifier and emulsifier for both o/w and w/o emulsions, even in cold process formulations, without impacting colour or odour.

      Cosphaderm® EGCg ECONAT

      Cosphaderm® EGCg ECONAT is a white powder extract from high quality green tea leaves of Camellia sinensis. The predominant active ingredient at more than 90% is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCg), a powerful antioxidant. EGCg is the most effective among the tea catechins displaying high levels of radical scavenging activity and thereby protecting the skin against reactive oxygen species. Research indicates that EGCg displays even further beneficial effects including antimicrobial activity, reduction of skin damage from UV light and prevention of collagen breakdown by inhibiting collagenase, the enzyme responsible for collagen breakdown. Cosphaderm® EGCg ECONAT is a genuine active ingredient that is particularly suitable for cosmetic anti-aging formulations.

      Cosphaderm® E-1000 NON GMO

      Cosphaderm® E-1000 NON GMO is a blend of the strong antioxidant d-alpha-tocopherol with non-GMO sunflower oil. It contains a minimum total amount of 67.1% d-alpha-tocopherol, equivalent to 1000 IU/g of vitamin E. D-alpha-tocopherol is the most effective form of vitamin E naturally present in the skin. Due to ultraviolet radiation, levels of vitamin E decrease towards the skin surface, making the skin vulnerable to oxidative stress. Cosphaderm® E-1000 NON GMO acts as a radical scavenger and antioxidant protecting the skin from UV damage, making it a genuine active ingredient particularly suitable for sun-care and anti-aging formulations. All formulations produced with Cosphaderm® E-1000 NON GMO may be labelled “contains vitamin E from a natural source”.

      Cosphaderm® E-1000 Sunflower

      Cosphaderm® E-1000 Sunflower consists of the strong antioxidant d-alpha-tocopherol from non-GMO sunflower oil. It contains a minimum total amount of 67.1% d-alpha-tocopherol, equivalent to 1000 IU/g of vitamin E. D-alpha-tocopherol is the most effective form of vitamin E naturally present in the skin. Due to ultraviolet radiation, levels of vitamin E decrease towards the skin surface making the skin vulnerable to oxidative stress. Cosphaderm® E-1000 Sunflower acts efficiently as a radical scavenger and antioxidant protecting the skin from UV damage, making it a genuine active ingredient particularly suitable for sun-care and anti-aging formulations. All formulations produced with Cosphaderm® E-1000 Sunflower may be labelled “contains vitamin E from a natural source”.

      Cosphaderm® E-1000Ac NON GMO

      Cosphaderm® E-1000Ac NON GMO is a blend of tocopheryl acetate and non-GMO sunflower oil. It contains a minimum total amount of 73.5 % d-alpha-tocopheryl acetate, equivalent to 1000 IU/g of vitamin E. Due to its stability, tocopheryl acetate is the most commonly used cosmetic vitamin E derivative. Tocopheryl acetate can be regarded as a precursor for transport of biologically active alpha-tocopherol through the outer skin layers. Upon penetration, it is enzymatically hydrolysed to release alpha-tocopherol in the skin. Once alpha-tocopherol is formed, it helps keep the cell membranes intact and protects against oxidation and free radicals. Furthermore, it promotes healing processes, enhances water binding and improves skin moisturization accordingly.
