Clean Beauty means elegance in every respect: from the selection
of sustainable raw materials, to the design and use of
high-functionality and high-performing ingredients, and the
benign reintegration into the biosphere post-use. This philosophy
is beautifully encapsulated in P2’s Citropol® technology..
Citropol® 1A is a low molecular-weight liquid polymer that is made from terpenes derived from the forest. Citropol 1A imparts distinct lubricating properties in skin-care and hair-care formulations.
Even in concentrations as low as 1%, the result is a slippery, silky formulation. Citropol 1A is a valuable component in a range of applications in the beauty industry: cosmetics, skin care, hair care, fragrance, deodorants, and moisturizers.
Citropol® F is the first fragrance fixative and carrier to come out of the Citropol® series. Citropol® F has a light odor and can solubilize and present a wide variety of essential oils and fragrance ingredients. Fragrance solutions with Citropol® F have the benefit of having an immediate and strong initial impression, as well as a controlled release of volatile ingredients over an extended period of time. Citropol® F provides hydrolytic stability while being 100% biorenewable, biodegradable, and biocompatible.
Citropol® V5 is a new volatile emollient that allows formulators to create high-performing, renewable, biodegradable products when used as low as 1% in cosmetic and personal care products.
Citropol® V5 imparts distinct volatility and spreadability properties, providing a natural alternative to low viscosity, volatile silicones. Citropol® V5 is compatible in skin care, hair care, deodorant, and anti-perspirant applications, and does not compromise human and environmental safety.
Citropol® HA is an emollient with a non-volatile, silicone-like sensory profile. Its medium viscosity and lightweight feel make Citropol HA a viable alternative to dimethicone 100 cPs.
Citropol HA imparts distinct lubricating properties with rich shine and feel in personal care and cosmetics formulations, even in concentrations as low as 1%. Citropol HA is compatible in skin care, hair care, deodorant, antiperspirant, and color cosmetic applications.
Citropol® H is a revolutionary medium viscosity cosmetics polymer. It is 100% derived from sustainable feedstocks and is a viable natural alternative to dimethicone 350 cPs.
Citropol H imparts a lightweight, velvety feel in personal care and cosmetics formulations. Based on our applications lab expertise, Citropol H is a valuable component in a range of applications in the beauty industry: cosmetics, skin care, hair care, fragrance, deodorants, and moisturizers.
Citropol® is a brand-new class of low MW liquid polymers that are made from 100% forest-derived terpenes using a clean, mild, and high yielding conversion process. The result is a patented, water-white, clear, odorless liquid with incredible feel properties. These polymers can be tuned and modified to achieve a wide range of physical properties that can be used in cosmetics, skin care, hair care, and fragrance formulations.
