Modern consumers want cosmetic products that are free from ingredients that have a negative impact on the environment. At the same time, consumers also expect products to deliver outstanding performance and attractive sensory properties. Cosmetics manufacturers face challenges when trying to meet these expectations while also operating in line with associated regulatory changes such as those regarding microplastics. New, readily biodegradable and renewable-based innovations such as the opacifier Euperlan® OP White and the stabilizer Lamesoft® Balance offer manufacturers sustainable ingredients for hair and skin cleansing products that are able to match or exceed the performance of traditional ingredients.
