ISOHEXADECANE AND FLUID SILICONES.

Neossance® Hemisqualane is an innovative and renewable C15 hydrocarbon, ideal for natural cosmetic formulations.

It is a non-volatile emollient with a light and dry feel. In skin-care it creates elegant and light textures with a non-tacky, non-greasy and silky finish. It is non-comedogenic. Its ability to dissolve crystalline UV filters makes it an ingredient of choice for sun-care products. In makeup, it facilitates a smooth and even application for lipsticks and foundations. Hemisqualane also demonstrates excellent cleansing properties for makeup remover applications. With a high-spreadability and soft after feel, it is also the ideal ingredient for hair-care applications, leaving the hair smooth and shiny without weighing it down.
