Heliosoft™ is a 100% natural origin O/W lamellar emulsifier, composed of sunflower phospholipids and fatty esters and alcohols from rapeseed. The lamellar structure of Heliosoft™ brings a unctuous touch, while leaving a very soft and comfortable sensation as well as a protective film on the skin after application.
Heliosoft™ is very efficient as it is able to emulsify up to 40% oil alone at a 4% usage rate and is compatible with all kinds of oils, pigments, chemical and physical UV filters. It can also be added to formulas as a co-emulsifier or skin feel enhancer, thus giving formulators high flexibility to create very fluid to thick textures.
The phospholipids give it strong active properties as well: Heliosoft™ keeps the skin moisturized, repairs damaged skin by quickly restoring the barrier function and enhances bioavailability and penetration of active ingredients for improved efficacy. Heliosoft™ is thus the ideal emulsifier to create emulsions dedicated to sensitive skin.
