Infinity Ingredients is the UK distributor of Lecigel™ from IFF Lucas Meyer Cosmetics.
Lecigel™ is a gelling agent with emulsifying and cooling properties (ice-cube-like sensation - pleasant and safe alternative to Menthol and Alcohol). It allows the increase in the stability of formulas.
Suitable for both cold and hot processes, it also helps to adjust the viscosity at the end of the formulation process. Easy to use and stable to pH 9, it is compatible with most emulsifiers and is stable over a wide range of pH.
Especially adapted for the formulation of gelcreams, it provides the typical ‘Phospholipid touch’ with a cool, soft and non-greasy skin feel.

- 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.
