Symrise targets personal care market with anti-microbial agent

Symrise has launched a new moisturising agent with anti-microbial properties as part of its attempts to develop a foothold as the leading ingredient provider in the international cosmetics market.

SymClariol is the latest in a long line of recent launches from the company, pitted for use across the board of personal care products such as shampoos and conditioners, deodorants and moisturising creams.

The agent arrives on the market at a time when the company is attempting to establish itself as the market leader in the beauty and personal care industry. This follows the industry recognition the company received earlier this year - winning two categories in the BSB Innovations Awards, held at the InCosmetics show in Paris last month.

Made up of 1,2-decanediol and INCI: decylene glycol, the company says that the efficacy of the formulation has been verified through a series of in-vivo and in-vitro tests.

Created in a wax-like material the company claims that the substance is compatible with all cosmetic ingredients, therefore can be used in a number of other products worldwide.

Broadening the functionality of the product, German based Symrise is also marketing the substance for use in all anti-acne, anti-dandruff and anti-fungal products for skin and nails.

The company will no doubt hope that SymClariol follows the success of previous launches of its SymRelief and SymRepair products, which won the 'Innovative Natural Raw Materials' and 'Innovative Functional Raw Materials'.

SymRelief won the 'Innovative Natural Raw Materials' due to the discovery that the addition of the ginger extract intensifies the anti-irritant effect of bisabolol.

Likewise, the award for 'Innovative Functional Raw Materials' was given to the company for its research into its SymRepair product - a lipid mixture that is said to allow the skin to regenerate and maintain its natural protective function, due to its similarity to the blend of lipids in the skin's outer most layers.

The company developed the materials to be used in a wide variety of products on the personal care market, in particular skin care ranges that target sensitive or dry skin whilst also combating acne and ageing.
