Sensory Enhanced Alkanes:-
Sensory Enhanced Alkanes
, specifically Lilac (INCI C14 – 22 Alkane) for Personal Care
applications, is a highly refined blend of alkanes and low cost
alternative to D5 silicones. Advantages
to using Lilac in formulations
is its ability for blending at much higher temperatures, higher safety
threshold, and preferred after-feel compared to other alternatives on
the market. Lilac is a hydrophobic, colorless, odorless liquid that is
chemically and biologically stable, is non-comedogenic and does not
support pathogenic bacterial growth.
Lilac has good spreadability, short play time and a powdery, soft
after-feel. The combination of emolliency with silicone-like properties
makes this a very versatile product in cosmetic applications where an
emollient and moisturizer is required.
