Skin care properties

Sufficient hydration is a basic requirement for a healthy, elastic skin. Most cosmetic products contain humectants to maintain or improve skin moisture. Polyols like glycerol or propylene glycol, as well as longer chained glycols, are often used for these purposes. Based on the ingredients – caprylyl glycol and ethylhexylglycerin, with a structure similar to glycerin – sensiva® SC 10 is a mild humectant and emollient which can improve the skin feel  of cosmetic formulations, especially if high amounts of glycerin are used.
