Emollients

Sonneborn products offer luxurious emolliency and excellent skin barrier properties for use in the most elegant skin care formulations. These innovative products have unique sensory characteristics and offer a skin feel that is much less greasy in nature, as well as softer and silkier than traditional petrolatums and white oils. These products also melt at skin temperature.

In addition to these products, SheaXP™ provides a hybrid emollient of a petrolatum with shea butter. This product is an excellent occlusive barrier for immediate and extended moisturization and allows for formulated products to be labeled as skin protectant drug products.

These innovative products enable our customers to achieve what they never thought possible. Sonneborn products play a critical role in consumers’ lives almost every day.
