Polyurethane film formers for innovative cosmetic products

Covestro Polyurethane film formers for innovative cosmetic products
Covestro has developed extra waterproof formulations for the beach using the film former Baycusan® C 1004. They retain at least 50 percent of their sun protection factor for more than one hour with repeated exposure to water.

Covestro will be showcasing innovative beauty solutions based on polyurethane raw materials of the Baycusan® brand at in-cosmetics Global in London from April 4 to 6, 2017 (stand M20). Both innovative and versatile, these film formers have proven effective in numerous cosmetics applications, for instance in formulations for skin, hair and sun care products, and for decorative cosmetics.

“This year, our exhibition focuses on the skin care of mature skin and an extra-waterproof sun care,” says Dr. Jane Sum, who recently took over management of the Cosmetics segment at Covestro. “This skin type puts special demands on daily skin care. This also includes a durable and compatible sun protection.”

Gentle daily care

In the area of mature skin care, Covestro has gathered new findings and developed new formulations proven to have a skin-firming effect. The effect is a result of Baycusan® C 1004, which acts like an invisible barrier against environmental influences. At the Personal Care and Homecare Ingredients (PCHi) trade fair in Guangzhou, China, Covestro cosmetic expert Xiaohui Xiong recently won an innovation award for this achievement.
