In hairstyling formulations, the bio-based film former Baycusan eco E 1000 achieves at least the same good performance levels as synthetic products, but avoids the disadvantages of other natural film formers.

Covestro will introduce its new Baycusan eco series of bio-based polyurethane (PU) film formers for the first time in France at the Cosmetagora trade fair in Paris on January 15 and 16, 2019.

The first product in the series, Baycusan eco E 1000, consists of almost 60% renewable raw materials and may be labeled as an ingredient of natural origin in accordance with ISO Standard 16128, Part 1.

In hair styling formulations, Baycusan eco E 1000 achieves at least the same good performance level as synthetic film formers – especially in formulations where long lasting hold and good moisture resistance are important.

The use of “green” raw materials in hair styling and hair care products is connected with visible and tangible disadvantages, e.g. with residues on the hair (flaking) as well as insufficient humidity resistance and washability.

Unlike natural film formers, it leaves no residue or sticky touch on the hair. The new product is an excellent way of enhancing the naturalness of cosmetic products without compromising on styling or quality. This is particularly true for the hair’s curl retention properties and heat protection.

Keeping up with the trend to natural products, the company will launch two new cosmetic formulations in Paris: One of them is a hair gel from the new biobased film former (INCI designation: Polyurethane-93) with very good hairstyling properties, which is based on natural or naturally derived ingredients and does not require any synthetic fixing additives.

At Cosmetagora, Covestro will also present the biodegradable properties of the synthetic polyurethane dispersions in the Baycusan classic range. In contrast to other film formers, they are biologically degraded within a short time period. This is an important advantage, especially when used in suncare products, where consumers pay particular attention to environmental compatibility.

Moreover, the company will showcase a Skin & Ocean Sun Protect Lotion based on synthetic Baycusan C 1004 (INCI: Polyurethane 35) whose ingredients have been carefully selected for their environmental profile. When formulating the suncare product, the main objective was to minimize the impact on the marine ecosystem and at the same time to offer high protection.
