Manufacturer of Kopcerin (Ethylhexylglycerin) in Switzerland and United Kingdom | Is your skin dry and want to improve the skin feel
Your skin may be dry, because the natural protective barrier is weakened, which allows moisture to go out and irritants to get in, making your skin dry and possibly itchy too.
Emollients create a protective layer on top of your skin, to help prevent moisture getting out and attract moisture into the top layer of the skin and retain it to rehydrate your skin.
Aqueous creams or emulsifying ointments are good alternatives for hand and bath soaps, because they do not strip the skin of its surface layer, as most soaps do.
Kopcerin (Ethylhexylglycerin) is a multifunctional ingredient. It is an emollient which improve the skin feel and also boost the efficacy of traditional preservatives. It is pure, colorless and almost odorless liquid. It is active against odor causing bacteria. Kopcerin is used in the personal care products such as facial creams, shaving creams, deodorants, , hair-care products etc.
The body odor occurs mainly in the underarm and foot. The body odor is caused mainly due to odor causing bacteria’s such as Staphylococcus Epidermidis & Staphylococcus Hominis. The odor is actually caused by bacteria living on the skin that find ideal conditions for growth in the warm areas of the body that tend to stay moist. These bacteria’s metabolize certain compounds found in sweat, leading to the occurrence of body odor.
As an emollient, it improves the skin feel of cosmetic formulations. It also helps to reduce the surface tension between the various liquids and oils in beauty products.
