INCI: Hydrogenated PolyisobuteneProduct Category: Emollient
Panalane H-300E a hydrogenated isobutene, is a versatile cosmetic emollient ideal for a wide variety of PC products. Panalane® H-300E is available in low and high viscosity grade that is blendable (Panalane® L-14E and Panalane H-300E).
It is ideal for use in colour cosmetics and lip products due to its characteristic rich feel, waterproofing capability and moisturizing effects. Panalane reduces emulsion droplet size and increases viscosity. It facilitates ease of application in lip treatments and improving wear resistance, thus limiting bleeding and feathering.
A control sunscreen formulation containing commonly used waterproofing polymer was compared to a sunscreen formulation containing this active. Both sunscreen formulations exhibited a static SPF of 17. After water immersion testing, the SPF of the control was reduced to 12 compared to 15 for the Panalane H-300E formulation. The fact that typical sunscreen filters are soluble at high levels in this active makes it an ideal waterproofing agent for these systems.
