NEOSSANCE®​ Hemisqualane, a non-polar C15 hydrocarbon sustainably sourced from sugarcane, is an ideal solution for D5 replacement challenges in color cosmetics products. It has received sustainable innovation awards from SEPAWA and CosmeticsDesign. Its manufacture consumes a low carbon footprint with minimal waste and water consumption. It offers no compromise in cost or performance in many applications when compared to fluid silicones and petroleum-based materials such as Isohexadecane. Studies have demonstrated equivalent spreadability characteristics and sensory performance to D5 and Isohexadecane in color cosmetics products.
