BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Advancion Corporation (“Advancion” or “Company”), today announced the introduction of a new, bio-based multifunctional amino alcohol specifically developed for use in beauty and personal care applications. The new ingredient, exclusively manufactured by Advancion, is 50% bio-based and provides exceptional performance, including high-efficiency neutralization, emulsion stabilization and pigment dispersion.

“This innovative ingredient is the result of several years of development focused on providing formulators and manufacturers with a powerful tool to create high-performance formulations that meet the growing demand for natural and eco-friendly cosmetics and personal care products,” said Debby Neubauer, Global Business Manager, Home and Personal Care. “In addition to its multifunctional benefits, the new additive technology provides exceptional formulating latitude and has broad compatibility with other commonly used personal care ingredients.”

  • Rapid, efficient neutralization
  • Low odor and non-yellowing
  • Superior high humidity curl retention (HHCR) in hair sprays and styling products
  • Excellent in-can corrosion inhibition in aerosol formulations
  • Exceptional compatibility with carbomer and other synthetic acrylic rheology modifiers
  • Enhanced pigment dispersion in color cosmetics for improved sensory characteristics and spreadability
  • Improved emulsion stability and sensory properties in skin care applications

“This is a significant advancement for Advancion with the addition of a true bio-based multifunctional technology into our portfolio of high-purity, high-performance additives,” said David Neuberger, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With a strong focus on sustainability and performance, our investments in new product development are dedicated to empowering formulators and brand owners to create exceptional products that resonate with today’s eco-conscious consumers.
