Hydrophobic Modified Chitosan (HMC) is a biopolymer with exceptional properties that make it an ideal ingredient for personal care and cosmetic products. This product is mild on the skin and scalp, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin. It is also biodegradable, which makes it environmentally friendly. HMC is highly effective in restructuring and repairing hair and skin, and it forms a protective film on the surface to prevent damage from environmental stressors.
In addition to these benefits, HMC also exhibits anti-microbial properties, which help to keep the skin and scalp healthy. It can be used in both W/O and O/W emulsions, and its solubility can be adjusted by altering the hydrophobic grafting percentage and carbon chain length. High grafting results in water-insoluble biopolymers, while low grafting leads to amphiphilic properties. This tunable solubility makes HMC highly versatile and allows for the creation of products with custom properties to suit specific needs.
Hydrophobic Modified Alginate (HMA) is a sustainable biopolymer with versatile applications across different products. It offers excellent moisturizing and spreadability properties, making it a popular ingredient in personal care, home care, and industrial products. It acts as an emulsifier, stabilizer, thickener, and gelling agent and exhibits anti-microbial properties to control odor-causing bacteria. Its film-forming properties make it an excellent ingredient for creating a protective barrier on different surfaces. Solubility can be altered by changing the hydrophobic grafting percentage and carbon chain length, allowing for further customization. Selection from octyl, decyl, lauroyl, cetyl, palmityl, stearyl, oleyl, cocoyl, or a small molecule provides formulators with flexibility in creating custom products. HMA’s sustainability, versatility, and desirable properties make it an ideal biopolymer for various products that cater to the demands of environmentally-conscious consumers.
