Citropol® 1A

Natural Solubilizer (Colorless - Odorless)

INCI Name:
Polycitronellol acetate

Description: Citropol® 1A represents a genuinely new development in the personal care and cosmetics ingredients market. It is the first in a brand new class of low MW liquid polymers that are made from terpenes derived from the forest. Citropol® 1A imparts distinct lubricating properties when used as low as 1% in skin or hair formulations. The result is a slippery, silky formulation that does not compromise human and environmental safety. Citropol® 1A is compatible in cosmetics, skin care, hair care, fragrance, deodorizing and moisturizing applications.

Renewability: Citropol® 1A is sustainably manufactured from naturally-derived terpenes. Citropol® 1A is made to meet the highest standards of the cosmetics and personal care industries, and has a very low E-factor. The raw material terpenes are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.

Biodegradability: Citropol® 1A is inherently biodegradable according to the OECD 301B Biodegradability test.
