Personal Care

Our Products for the Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical Industry

Our products are widely used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry, where they are employed as processing aids, as softener for adjusting hardness, in many lotions and creams (e.g. cleansing milk, lipid-replenishing cosmetics and sun protection agents, but also for hair care). They act as the base for creams, lipsticks, rouge and eye cosmetics such as eye shadow, eyebrow pencils and mascara.

Petroleum jellies, solid paraffins and microwaxes are essential components in formulations, as they have outstanding properties in terms of their protective action, colour and also as a consistency regulator. They help to enhance the health of the skin by protecting it from dehydration. Other applications range from shaving foam, hot and cold depilatory waxes to thermal therapy, which exploits the outstanding heat storing properties of paraffin waxes.
