Clean and Green Alternative to Petrochemicals from Stéarinerie Dubois

Responsible Beauty
Formulation with our esters, in step with the trends

CLEAN AND GREEN ALTERNATIVE TO PETROCHEMICALS

The Certain global trends have become prerequisites on the cosmetics market, and today our know-how in oleochemistry is at the forefront of a demand for green, responsible, sustainable, biodegradable products.

Still, the desire for alternative ingredients comes with the same constraints as in the past: controlling costs while delivering exceptional sensory qualities and visible effects.

To meet this demand, in 2010 Stéarinerie Dubois initiated a comprehensive study of their esters in relation to the leading emollients on the market.

This led to a full-fledged collaborative effort (with university researchers and other experts) to gather data and process it using statistical tools (proximity matrices to identify similarities between ingredients, mapping of emollients, etc.) as well as instrumental methods (objective analysis of performance, sensoriality and textures).

DUB OE HP ALTERNATIVE TO CYCLOPENTASILOXANE = D5

DUB OE HP offers the sensorial and functional benefits of Cyclopentasiloxane including very good spreadability, ultra light touch as well as hydration boosting properties.

DUB LAHE – ALTERNATIVE TO ISOHEXADECANE

ISOHEXADECANE is used for its unique soft feel, lightness and hydration-boosting capacity. It finds its equivalent in DUB LAHE, a safe ingredient in terms of both functional and sensory qualities.

DUB SOGREEN – ALTERNATIVE TO DIMETHICONE

Like DIMETHICONE 10 cSt, DUB SOGREEN offers excellent spreading and boosts the formula emolliency. It is sensorially very similar in skincare and makeup.
DUB SOGREEN strengthens the cutaneous hydrolipidic film and protects the skin against dehydration.

DUB TOGEE – ALTERNATIVE TO MINERAL OIL

DUB TOGEE leaves a light film on the skin’s surface and exerts a dual action, moisturizing and replumping of the skin.  DUB TOGEE also offers better penetration and a softer, less greasy finish compared with Mineral Oil.
