Reverdia’s 100% Natural Speciality Grade Bio-succinic Acid
Biosuccinium® S is a speciality grade certified by ECOCERT as 100% natural. It can be used directly or as an intermediate for formulations to enable high-quality bio-based solutions for cosmetics and personal care.
Registered under the ECOCERT Natural and Organic Cosmetics Standard, Biosuccinium® S grade meets current requirements of natural cosmetic raw materials. It is a direct ingredient for products such as soaps, body washes, shampoos, bath salts and perfumes. Bio-succinic acid has exfoliation properties and gels containing bio-succinic acid reduce surface skin flakiness more effectively than traditional low pH alpha-hydroxy acids.
Biosuccinium® S can be used to formulate succinate esters for skin care, hair care, colour and antiperspirant products. Succinic-based emollients are suitable as alternatives to silicone fluids and provide both shine and a light fast-drying emolliency. Many succinate esters can also be considered fragrance carriers, imparting additional pleasant, mild sweet notes. If natural alcohols are used in synthesis, di-ester succinate solvents can be up to 100% natural.
