Natural Plant-

Sonneborn natural plant-based emollients redefine industry benchmarks. These products deliver the optimal moisturization and emolliency benefits along with a wide range of sensory characteristics to best enhance the finished formulation.

This is a full line of unique, 100% natural plant-based products, ranging in slip, gloss and cushion to fit any formulation requirement. These products provide exceptional transepidermal water loss (TEWL) performance that is comparable to petrolatum. They also provide emolliency with a range of aesthetic and sensory attributes with botanical benefits for ease in formulation and product enhancement.

Suggested applications include body washes, lotions, face creams, hair conditioners, hair pomades, lip balms, sunscreen products, shaving and after-shave products, antiperspirant / deodorant products, and any other personal care products where petrolatum properties would be desirable in an all-natural formulation. One grade is palm-free and all products are Vegan certified.
