Liponate® CCC MB (Vantage) is a naturally derived fast-spreading, dry-feel emollient ester for silicone-free formulations.

“Silicone-free” claims in the cosmetics market have increased in recent years, and brands continue to seek naturally derived alternatives to replace a broad array of silicone oils (dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane etc). In addition, environmental concerns over silicones such as D4, D5, and D6 has also increased the need for safe and biodegradable alternatives.

Liponate® CCC MB is derived from certified sustainable palm oil and is 100% naturally derived. The composition is optimised to lower the amount of long chain fatty alcohols, leading to faster spreading and improved skin aesthetics than the tested benchmarks. Panel testing demonstrates that Liponate® CCC MB provides a light, non-greasy touch with a powdery after-feel, and makes an excellent alternative to commonly used silicones such as D5 and Dimethicone.

When compared to dimethicone, Liponate™ CCC MB also provides long term moisturisation benefits. It is very versatile and can be used in many formulations including skincare, colour cosmetics, suncare, and haircare.
