EMOGREEN™ are liquid, inert, non-polar oils and highly pure thanks to the patented production process. EMOGREEN™ is based on sustainable plant biomass and is biodegradable.
EMOGREEN™ are non-oxidizable, stable, highly pure, inert and non-comedogenic... and therefore versatile. Emogreen™ are not only easy to incorporate into formulations because they are liquid and thanks to their transparency, but they are also compatible with all types of oil phases (vegetable oils, esters, silicone oils, mineral oils...). In addition, we have conducted numerous tests that prove that Emogreen™ can be used for all cosmetic applications (skin care, hair care, sun care, makeup, cleansing, etc.).
In this first part we would like to focus on the special properties in skin, sun and decorative care:
Skin care - focus on very dry and sensitive skin
Skin comfort is one of the biggest market demands, as more and more consumers claim to have sensitive skin: This has become a worldwide problem.
EMOGREEN™ L19 addresses the needs of very dry and sensitive skin: it is the ally of very dry skin for a better appearance, a balanced skin microbiota and a new sense of comfort! Tests show:
- It balances the skin's microbiota and provides a restored hydrolipidic film, the first step in improving skin hydration (tested in vivo).
- It has a significant restructuring effect (+8%) in synergy with Bisabolol (tested in vivo).
- It significantly improves the moisture content (+10%), softness (+15%) and smoothness (+11%) of very dry skin after 28 days. 91% of study respondents felt a decrease in skin discomfort after 28 days of treatment.
In addition, EMOGREEN™ L19 allows a reduction in the minimum amount of preservatives required to achieve preservation criterion A (according to the European Pharmacopoeia)!
This hand cream is an excellent moisturizer and protector for the skin thanks to EMOGREEN™ L19 and 20% shea butter. It repairs even the most damaged hands. EMOGREEN™ L19 facilitates the application of the hand cream by bringing a good glide.

In-vivo studies show that EMOGREEN™ L19 improves the appearance of very dry skin and shows a significant tightening effect after 1 and 6 hours after a single application.
Sun care - natural film former and anti-sand praise
The EMOGREEN™ range shows very good dispersing properties and increases the stability of formulations with inorganic as well as organic sunscreen filters. EMOGREEN™ can replace C12-15 alkyl benzoates without affecting sensory performance or SPF.
An anti-sand claim is also possible: internal tests confirm that the formulas containing EMOGREEN™ have the same results as the market benchmark claiming an anti-sand effect!
This gentle sunscreen spreads easily on the skin and is quickly absorbed. It provides daily protection against sun damage and dehydration with 25% ZnO.
A highly protective and mineral sunscreen product
Emogreen™ HP 40 is a versatile textured ingredient that is also interesting for sun protection thanks to its film-forming properties. In a sunscreen formulation with SPF 30 at 2% compared to VP/Eicosene copolymer, water resistance was measured in vitro after 20 and 40 minutes. The formulation with Emogreen™ HP 40 showed the same water resistance as the one with VP/Eicosene copolymer.
This sunscreen combines protection and a light skin feel for an enchanting customer experience thanks to its cream-gel texture. EMOGREEN™ HP 40 provides a double benefit by contributing to the dispersion of UV filters and ensuring high water resistance and durability of the sunscreen on the skin thanks to its film-forming properties.

Decorative cosmetics - Supports dispersion of pigments and color intensity
The EMOGREEN range gives make-up formulations a good glide and a pleasant, powdery afterfeel that increases skin affinity. It also supports the dispersion of pigments with anti-transfer properties.
This natural O/W foundation unifies the complexion thanks to a high content of hydrophilic pigments. EMOGREEN™ L15 provides a good glide and a pleasant powdery afterfeel that increases skin affinity.

In addition, Emogreen™ HP 40 was tested in a liquid lipstick compared to Hydrogenated Polyisobutene and found to be less sticky in formulation. Color intensity was also evaluated with the same formula and no significant difference was found, highlighting Emogreen™ HP 40 as a relevant sustainable alternative that offers color intensity and comfort on the lips.
Here's a gloss to protect your lips with EMOGREEN™ HP 40, which improves comfort and color intensity and makes them less sticky.
