BioEstolide™ is a revolutionary new bio-based emollient that offers enhanced stability, exceptional moisturization characteristics and a light, satiny feel. BioEstolides™ bridge the gap between sustainability and performance providing the personal care market a safe non-toxic product that is made from natural oils, gentle on the skin, biodegradable and yet still offers enhanced oxidative and thermal stability. That allows BioEstolides™ to significantly outlast other products without the need for preservatives.
Innovative technology, exceptional results
Biosynthetic Technologies’ flexible chemistry allows for the products to be specifically designed to meet a wide range of formulation requirements and can be customized if needed. The estolide is made by linking natural fatty acids together to form stable oligomers. The fatty acids can come from almost any natural oil source. In this instance the BioEstolides™ are formed using fatty acids from castor oil. This unique estolide structure provides the product enhanced unique protection from oxidation or thermal degradation so it does not easily go rancid or break down over time. BioEstolides™ also deliver superior oxidative stability and hydrolytic stability making them longer lasting with a better shelf life and easier to formulate with in a wide range of personal care applications. BioEstolides™ are a non-GMO and cruelty free product so no animal testing or products are used in making or testing the product.
