- What is the difference between Siligel & Ecogel?
Siligel™ is an upgraded version of Ecogel™, with optimised thickening properties, colour and ease of use (cold processible). Siligel™ is also extremely resistant to electrolytes (up to 20%!). However Ecogel™ also has specific added value like Cosmos status, Vegan complaint and superior emulsifying properties than Siligel™.
- What is the added value of using phospholipid based emulsifiers ?
Phospholipids have been used in the cosmetic industry for many years and are a major component of all cell membranes. Their high skin tolerance and strong attraction to the stratum corneum has significant impact on their protective and hydration properties. They also improve bioavailability of active ingredients to get better and faster results making them more than just an emulsifier. We like to think of them as functional actives. Phospholipid based emulsifiers provide a unique and sophisticated skin feel with a wide range of textures from sprays to creams.
