Title: Lipo-QUEST BG - Connect Chemicals' Solution For Fat-soluble Chelating Agents

Abstract: Chelating agents are used in almost all types of personal care formulations for increased effectiveness and improved stability. The use of these agents increases consumer acceptance. The chelation mechanism, described as a chelate complex, is based on multiple bonds (multidentate ligand) around a single central atom. Nowadays, the chelating agents on the market are almost exclusively water-soluble. However, with the exponential growth of waterfree and waterless products, there is a real need for fat-soluble chelating agents. Lipo-QUEST BG meets exactly this need, because Lipo-QUEST BG is an exclusive blend, with a natural index of over 0.75 (ISO 16128 standard). Lipo-QUEST BG is ideal for use in trendy solid body care, both in rinse-off, as well as in leave-on products and provides a real solution to prevent rancidity, softening, brown spots, cracking and discoloration caused by metal ions . Furthermore, Lipo -QUEST BG serves to improve foaming and wash-off. In fact, tests prove that Lipo-QUEST BG is particularly selective towards problematic transition metals such as Cu and Fe, and compared to Ca and Mg, and therefore offers an innovative and powerful solution for: Oils and other anhydrous formulas Protection against rancidity of more sensitive and easily oxidized components Inhibition of the formation of unpleasant odors In perfumes Protection from fading Prolongation of the smell of perfume In classical O/W and O/W formulas Improving the stability of lipophilic ingredients in formulations. Reducing the speed of discoloration Better compatibility with sensitive thickening systems such as acrylic polymers compared to standard EDTA-type chelating agents. Improved shelf life and effectiveness of vitamins, essential oils and fatty acids. Lipo-QUEST BG, a lipid phase soluble chelating agent, is thus an innovative solution to a real need in the changing cosmetics market.
