Wissembourg, France - April 23, 2012
INTERPOLYMER strengthened its presence at the In-cosmetics 2012 in Barcelona with the launch of its SYNTRAN® PC5620. Mrs Audrey Ameline, Category Manager Consumer Specialties, commented “We were very satisfied with the show in Barcelona. We have seen a fantastic enthusiasm for our new product SYNTRANâ PC5620 and have generated a record number of enquiries”.
This novel acrylate film-forming polymer allows the development of water-based nail polishes. Our water-based technology eliminates concerns with regard to safety hazards, toxicity and VOC issues currently facing solvent-based nail polishes and allows the formulator to develop nail polishes that are compatible with water-based actives.
Laboratory testing has shown that formulations containing SYNTRAN® PC5620 exhibits quicker dry time and superior wear and hardness compared to competitive water based nail polishes. Moreover our test formulation provides superior initial gloss compared to water-based and solvent-based benchmarks.
Cosmetic industry has rewarded the innovation and unique properties of the SYNTRAN® PC5620 during the In-Cosmetics ceremony award with the 2012 Cosmetics & Toiletries® R&D award in the category “Best New Ingredient”. Mr. Georg Plönnes, Sales Director for Europe, Africa and Middle East commented: “Thanks to this price, all the cosmetic team from INTERPOLYMER is rewarded for its work since several months on the development of the polymer. We are convinced that the SYNTRAN® PC5620 will change the face of nail polish market and will allow the development of effective water-based nail polishes to compete solvent-based products”.
