The growing demand for eco-friendly products force formulators to choose between efficacy and sensoriality. Heliosoft™ has been developed with 100% natural origin ingredients thanks to the combination of sunflower lecithin and fatty esters and alcohols from rapeseed.
This smart combination gathers the technical and physiological properties of phospholipids with the sensorial and thickening properties of fatty esters and alcohols. Heliosoft™ is indeed a very efficient emulsifier as it is able to emulsify up to 40% oil alone at 4% and is compatible with all kinds of oils, pigments, chemical and physical UV filters. It can also be added to formulas as a co-emulsifier or skin feel enhancer, thus giving formulators high flexibility to create very fluid to thick textures.
Not only is Heliosoft™ an efficient emulsifier, its smart combination has also been proven to promote lamellar organization in formulas, which gives it a perfect affinity to the skin and an extreme tolerance. This biomimetic structure of Heliosoft™ brings an unctuous touch, while leaving a very soft and comfortable sensation as well as a protective film on the skin after application.
The lamellar structure of Heliosoft™ has indeed been proven to have an effect on the stratum corneum by increasing its thickness and lamination, thus helping to quickly restore the barrier function of damaged skin. Heliosoft™ also keeps the skin hydrated for up to 8 hours and can enhance bioavailability and penetration of active ingredients for improved efficacy.
Tested on 20 volunteers with sensitive skin, Heliosoft™ has also been approved to be the ideal candidate to formulate emulsions dedicated to the most sensitive skin!
Heliosoft™ is China-compliant, COSMOS approved and 100% natural origin content (ISO 16128).
