Cyclomethicone D5 continues to be used extensively in color cosmetics and sunscreen products for even coverage and spreadability, despite its restriction in the EU. Our Hemisqualane enables the same coverage and smooth application, without the environmental risk.
Silicones are also frequently used in cleansers, foundations, lipsticks, and sunscreens to improve a product’s texture and sensory feel. Our Hemisqualane has proven to achieve equivalent sensorial properties with added benefits, such as better playtime and longer wear, both viewed as important attributes by consumers.
Smoothness and Strengthening:
Silicones are one of the most popular haircare ingredients to reduce frizz and improve hair texture. However, it builds up over time, leading to a straw-like feel and dull appearance to the hair. In contrast, Hemisqualane offers these same benefits without the hair health consequences. Byrdie applauds Hemisqualane as an ingredient that “works great alone or as part of the formula for hair serums and oils.”
Hemisqualane is revolutionizing haircare by not only improving the smooth quality of the hair but also nourishing it from within the hair shaft. Hemisqualane is able to penetrate the hair shaft to provide weightless nourishment that improves manageability, reduces frizz, and preserves color. Neossance Hemisqualane works instantly and over time to add softness, slip, shine, and bounce.
