SymLite G8: Natural protection for skin and cosmetics


14/03/2019

Made from sustainably sourced raw materials, it naturally enhances the skin caring effect of cosmetic products while improving their shelf life: That’s what SymLite G8 does. Symrise will present the multifunctional, plant-based ingredient made from renewable raw materials at In-Cosmetics Global from April 2 to April 4, 2019, in Paris at its booth E110. The product results from a cooperation with Oleon, a leading producer of oleo chemicals in Belgium.

“Consumers expect their cosmetic products to be made from sustainable raw materials produced in an ecologically and ethically responsible manner. At the same time, they should provide more benefits,” said Symrise’s Yohanna Sander, Senior Global Product Manager Product Protection. “At Symrise, we see ourselves as a pioneer in the field of multifunctional ingredients. With our naturally derived, multifunctional ingredient SymLite G8, we’re taking another big step in making our product portfolio greener and more sustainable.”

Eder Ramos, President Cosmetic Ingredients Division, about the co-operation with the Belgian specialty provider of oleo chemicals: ‘We are excited to partner with Oleon, one of the leading producers of oleo chemicals, to bring SymLite G8 to the cosmetic market. Sebastien Busschaert, Global Business Manager Life Sciences at Oleon adds: This cooperation fits perfectly with Oleon’s strategy to produce natural oleo chemical solutions for a dynamic personal care market. We look forward to combining our production expertise with Symrise’s know-how in modern product protection as well as their global presence in the market of cosmetic raw ingredients.’

One natural raw material, three benefits
SymLite G8 (Glyceryl Caprylate) naturally supports the product protection system, strengthens the skin barrier and, as a co-emulsifier, helps to stabilize oil-in-water emulsions. Thanks to its sustainable production, SymLite G8 is certified according to the strict guidelines of the international COSMetic Organic and Natural Standard (COSMOS). It is suitable for use in all kinds of cosmetic products. SymLite G8 makes it easier for manufacturers of natural cosmetics to improve the shelf life of their products. It also offers producers of conventional cosmetics the opportunity to increase the proportion of sustainable ingredients in their products.
