Effective Natural Alternatives to Synthetic Solubilizers, a Comparison Study

M. Kallergi, M. Daubney

Natural and sustainable ingredients are one of the key drivers behind the growth of the global personal care and cosmetics market. 
Stephenson’s naturally derived Durosoft® esters are a range of COSMOS approved, 100 % natural, RSPO certified and palm free emulsifiers, surfactants, emollients and solubilisers that can be used in a variety of cosmetic and personal care applications. 
In this article, we will discuss the solubilizing property of Durosoft PG10CY, a natural solubiliser of fragrances and essential oils.
Solubilizers are needed to incorporate fragrances and/or essential oils in cosmetics. The performance of Durosoft PG10CY was compared in parallel to Polysorbate 20, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil as well another commercially available natural solubiliser.
The fragrances and essential oils selected are based on Michael Edward’s fragrance wheel, and tested at different ratios:
10 :1, 5 :1 and 3 :1 ratios.
