BeauSens® PG4

The mild surfactant


BeauSens® PG4 is an interesting mild surfactant derived from pelargonic acid (C9), which enables the creation of various formula, like micellar water, serum, makeup remover, maintaing an eco-friendly profile. Sourced from Sunflower Seed Oil (no GMO), it offers a sustainable choice, protecting biodiversity and preserving the ecosystem health.


The common name, “sunflower”, typically refers to the popular annual species Helianthus annuus, or the common sunflower, whose round flower heads in combination with the ligules looks like the glowing sun. Aside from the crop’s value as a food, these plants have been used for centuries by traditional medicine. Whether resting on a flat surface or propped up in a vase, sunflowers star in Van Gogh's most famous still life depictions which have altered mankind's perspective of art and life.

What is it?

BeauSens® PG4 is the result of a perfect combination between nature and innovation. Through the extraction of Pelargonic Acid from sunflower seed oil, advanced technologies and exclusive manufacturing processes are here involved for the creation of this unique non-ionic surfactant.

What does it do?

Low foaming properties combined with BeauSens® nature as a delicate non-ionic surfactant, make this ingredient suitable for gentle formulas like micellar waters, cleansing milks and wet wipes. BeauSens® PG4 also promotes the solubilization of essential oils and fragrances, once applied into the cosmetic formula.

In a few words

  • 100% natural origin
  • Gentle cleansing activity
  • Low foaming properties
  • Safe and dermocompatible

Added value

Unlike other non-ionic surfactants, BeauSens® PG4 is a concrete sustainble solution for various cosmetic formulas, especially for cleansing applications. A great mild surfactant which preserve skin natural hydration for making cosmetics in the light of sustainability.
