Cosphaderm® Tapmix is a natural antioxidant blend offering unique properties for optimum product protection and ease of application. 

Its smart composition means that this blend not only provides protection against oxidation of the fatty phase, but also acts as an active ingredient to protect the membrane lipids of the skin. This is made possible by the fact that the ratio of alpha, beta-gamma and delta tocopherols is more evenly balanced than that of soybean and sunflower tocopherols. Since exclusively natural tocopherols are used, the bioavailability is considerably higher than with synthetic variants. Moreover, rapeseed tocopherol only contains RRR tocopherol and no stereoisomers.

Unlike ascorbyl palmitate, tocopherols exhibit good solubility in fats. Ascorbyl palmitate, however, is an outstanding booster for antioxidant efficiency, since it can regenerate tocopherols and therefore increase their availability as free radical scavengers. In order to fully exploit all the benefits of these ingredients and at the same time offer a very user-friendly product, Cosphaderm® Tapmix also contains organically produced sunflower lecithin. This acts as an emulsifier of ascorbyl palmitate, facilitating its incorporation into the oil phase without the need for intense heat. The membrane-like phospholipids of lecithin also care for the skin and hair, increase emulsion stability and additionally boost the antioxidant effect. 

Cosphaderm® Tapmix is a liquid, cloudy solution that offers excellent user-friendliness and complies to the natural cosmetics standards. The recommended concentration for use is 0.5 - 1.0 %.
