      What we do

      Cosphatec takes care of skin tolerance and of nature at the same time. We use bio-degradable raw materials that are derived from sustainable and natural sources. These are all tested according to the highest German quality standards to guarantee the best possible effect on the skin.

      All of our raw materials are vegan and do not contain any GMO.
      The core products are approved by COSMOS and we source our palm oil strictly following RSPO standards.
      All Cosphatec raw materials reliably cover the essential needs of cosmetic formulators: microbial stability, antioxidative stability as well as stability for emulsions and viscosity.

      Benefit from natural stability for modern cosmetics!

      Multifunctionals

      Nature-Identical Preservatives

      Our nature-identical and bio-degradable Multifunctionals will help you to transition to more natural resources step by step, because as most of the identical structures are already found in nature. Benefit from the strong antimicrobial activity these materials provide to replace listed preservatives or boost any preservative system in an eco-friendly way.

      Cosphaderm® Pentiol GL

      Cosphaderm® Pentiol GL is a pure, transparent, colourless and odourless glycol. Two vicinal OH-groups and a short carbon chain allow unlimited water-solubility. This property is strongly related 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® Pentiol GL can also be used to stabilize o/w emulsions by droplet size reduction. Another core property of pentylene glycol 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.
