In Germany, Covestro will present its new Baycusan eco series of biobased polyurethane film formers for the first time in France at the Cosmetagora trade fair in Paris on January 15 and 16. The first product in the series, Baycusan eco E 1000, consists of almost 60 percent renewable raw materials and may be labeled as an ingredient of natural origin in accordance with ISO Standard 16128, Part 1.
Keeping up with the trend to natural products, Covestro is presenting two new cosmetic formulations in Paris: One of them is a hair gel from the new biobased film former (INCI designation: Polyurethane-93) with very good hairstyling properties, which is based on natural or naturally derived ingredients and does not require any synthetic fixing additives.
Covestro will also be presenting the biodegradable properties of the synthetic polyurethane dispersions in the Baycusan classic range. In contrast to other film formers, they are biologically degraded within a short time period.
Covestro will also present a Skin & Ocean Sun Protect Lotion based on synthetic Baycusan C 1004 (INCI: Polyurethane 35) whose ingredients have been carefully selected for their environmental profile. When formulating the suncare product, the main objective was to minimize the impact on the marine ecosystem and at the same time to offer high protection.
