Bio-fermentation: a way to explore efficient and eco-conscious cosmetic products

Bio-fermentation process is a low carbon foot-print solution. By selecting the right micro-organism and the right substrate, possibilities are limitless. A wide range of actives are coming from bio-fermentation like radiance enhancers, energizers and wrinkle fillers but we see more and more complex functional ingredients emerging in the beauty and personal care market for playing on the texture, stabilizing, emulsifying or to improve performance (solubilizer, deposition aids) of different products. At Univar Solutions, we propose the following technology coming from bio fermentation:

Satiaxane™ VPC 930: The nature-derived thickener for transparent formulations

COSMOS approved, cold processable anionic thickener. It is produced in France  through a process of aerobic fermentation of sugars with strains of non-GMO Xanthomonas campestris. Sources in the fermentation broth are of 100% vegetable origin: wheat and sugar beet.

It is a cost efficient thickener, emulsion stabilization aid and suspending agent (≥1% dose) that produces gels with good to excellent transparency. Depending on the dose of use it is sprayable. It has been shown to have a synergy with StarDesign Care to improve foam quantity & quality in toiletries and hair care products. Compatible with alcohol (≤60%), anionic & non-ionic surfactants and stable at a wide pH range (3-12).

Cold process is possible and heating will only make faster the deployment of the thickener. When dispersed in water, premix in glycerin is recommended to avoid lump formation.
