Optimize Performance & Protection

Forming a flexible film on skin can boost performance of many different formulation types. Especially in suncare, the addition of a film former is crucial to create uniform coverage on the skin and water resistance. INOLEX's platform of flexible film formers is rooted in polyester chemistry and results in highly tailored molecules for a range of applications.

Green Chemistry Designed

Biodegradability is an important indicator that a substance has a benign, non-harmful impact on the environment at end of life. Biodegradation is the ability of organic substances to be broken down by microbial action into simpler structures or components: CO2, H2O, biomass, and salts. Non-degradable substances have the potential to persist, accumulate, and present toxicity to the environment. Go biodegradable to reduce the impact of cosmetic ingredients on the environment.
