“Eco-designed cosmetic ingredients through upcycle of resources”
What is meant by this statement?
Mr. Andrea Maltagliati – Market Manager for Personal Care in ROELMI HPC – told us how ROELMI HPC activities spring through cutting-edge technologies driven by innovation in green chemistry and are guided by the will of building high-performing models of circular economy. Mediterranean renewable sources are involved in integrated supply chains, completely controlled and traceable, to design out innovation.
More specifically, he continued his speech focused on 4 different topics:
- Olifeel® line
- EMotion® line
- Celus-Bi® Feel
- Méditerranée line
Let’s see them in more detail!
The selective research on olive benefits to reach specific cosmetic applications are pursued by isolating purified non-edible fractions through 100% soft green manufacturing process. Resulted purity allows formulators to work with complete freedom in choosing natural ingredients such as: (i) gelling and texturing capacity, (ii) actives enhancer and skin feel, (iii) primary emulsifiers.
An industrial plant, completely converted to “green chemistry” allows the creation of high-purity Pelargonic acid (above 98) from different sustainable crops, by local cultivar in marginal lands to create a wide range of biodegradable emollients with exceptional touch and outstanding properties (solubilization and dispersion of UV filters and pigments). Biodegradability tested as per OECD 301B method.
Technological sensorial spheres for sustainable cosmetics. Texturizers with proved performances (unique softness, smoothness & absorption rate) against standard plasticizing powders and peculiar environmental-friendly (readily biodegradable according to OECD 301 method). Efficient solution to formulate eco-sustainably, replacing standard powders like Nylon, PMMA, Polyurethane and PE. This is the ethical choice.
A full selection of totally natural extracts from renewable sources avoiding any kind of food competition, in the full respect of biodiversity ready to be used in all water and oil-based cosmetic formulations allowing for the increase in the character of sustainability in your formula.
All the benefits of plants known worldwide in the physiotherapeutic tradition available with biodegradable solvents from circular economy.
