Personal Care

Specialty ingredients in personal care products have physical properties (inactive ingredients) as well as functional properties (active ingredients).

We process multi-functional silicone molecules used in formulations with good spreading, film forming, wash-off resistance, skin feel, volatility and permeability. Apart from highly stable emulsifiers and wetting agents, we process dermo-pharmaceutical actives from Bicosome’s Proprietary Line and Naturochim’s Unique Butters & Waxes.


Csilcare Silicones used in personal care applications are comprised of cyclic, linear or organo-functional polydimethylsiloxanes. These molecules have emulsifying, stabilizing and rheology modifying properties imparting soft feel and high spreadability.

    Bicosomes is a new lipid delivery platform, created by Bicosome, a Spanish Active Manufacturing Company. These active encapsules are formed by two different lipid assemblies: internal disc-shaped structures and an external bilayer vesicle. This system is able to modulate the skin’s barrier function without damaging the tissue, and penetrate the skin, targeting specific skin layers and delivering active ingredients where they are needed. After delivery, the structures of bicosomes are integrated into the skin’s lipid structure, thus reinforcing the tissue.
