Pentiol Green +


Description :
MinaCare® Pentiol Green + is the unique renewable alternative of petro-sourced Pentylene Glycol, which is a very widely used moisturizing agent. Additionally, this ingredient has proven its value against yeasts, molds and bacteria as an alternative to conventional preservatives for skin care, hair care, make up and toiletries.

In accordance with its commitment in Sustainability Minasolve, together with its sister company -Pennakem USA-, developed this “green” Pentylene Glycol, derived from sugar cane bagasse or corn cobs which meets trends and consumer demands in the personal care industry. This innovation allows customers to use a green variant of a well-known ingredient at competitive price, without any formulation challenges.

This ingredient received the “Silver Green Ingredient Award” during In Cosmetics (Hamburg, April 2014).
