With the new natural diol, Cosphatec GmbH, as an expert in natural preservatives, now offers an even more comprehensive portfolio of diols. The COSMOS- and NATRUE-compliant Cosphaderm Hexiol acts as a natural multifunctional and, thanks to its pH-value independence, offers a wide range of applications in skin and hair care. 

Cosphaderm® Hexiol natural is a pure, transparent, colourless and odourless diol of natural origin. Two vicinal OH-groups and a short carbon chain allow unlimited water-solubility. This property is strongly relevant to its most common cosmetic use as a moisturizer and humectant for both skin and hair care formulations. Static light scattering experiments have shown that Cosphaderm® Hexiol natural can also be used to stabilize o/w emulsions by droplet size reduction. 

Another property of Cosphaderm® Hexiol natural is its pH-independent antimicrobial activity. It further shows remarkable synergistic effects in combination with other antimicrobial substances, making it possible to minimize the total amount of combined preserving agents. 

The product will now be presented at the next trade fairs in Mexico, Brazil, Poland and Spain. In Germany, the product will be presented at SEPAWA in Berlin (25 - 27 October) at the Cosphatec company stand C415/416. Interested parties can get advice from the experts and get to know the entire product portfolio.

From the early beginnings Cosphatec GmbH focuses on naturally preserving modern cosmetics and hence to cover the fundamental needs of cosmetic formulators in terms of microbial and antioxidative stability, as well as stability for emulsions and viscosity. At the company natural substances and skin tolerance are equally important. Therefore, the industry expert uses biodegradable raw materials that come from sustainable and natural sources. To guarantee the best possible effects on the skin, the ingredients are tested according to highest German quality standards. The natural raw materials are vegan, non-GMO and the core products are also approved by COSMOS and NATRUE. Their product range goes from natural multifunctionals and mild preservatives to antioxidants as well as natural emulsifiers and emollients. Furthermore, Cosphatec offers not only actives but also natural thickening and gelling agents.
