Ingredients debuted at the show

Vantage is introducing two innovations aimed at enhancing formulation performance:

  • CURAZELIC® 44 is a novel form of solubilised azelaic acid to help improve performance in face cleansers and clear formulations. It was developed to simplify the introduction of azelaic acid in formulations. It is a flowable solution of azelaic acid for easy incorporation in emulsions, gels or surfactant systems. It contains 44% of pre-solubilised azelaic acid which also helps improve bio-availability. Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine acts as an emollient and a solubiliser for azelaic acid to facilitate its addition to gels and emulsions.
  • METAUPON® EZ AMIBIO, the latest sulfate-free, liquid surfactant system has been developed for its versatility and compatibility with a broad range of rinse-off systems. It not only provides exceptional frizz control but also enhances wet and dry hair combability. It can help boost skin hydration too. The system’s versatility shines as an amphoteric surfactant, making it ideal for low pH formulations such as acne treatments and feminine hygiene products.
