are the sustainable choice for formulators. Due to their outstanding properties in terms of solubilisation and dispersion of UV filters and pigments, they turn out to be particularly suitable for sun care and make-up applications.
In lipsticks and mascaras, they have been proved to confer high color intensity to the formulation, tint homogeneity, good texture, bright and glossy effect.
Esters are largely employed in cosmetic formulations as softening and smoothing agents. They are used in mostly applications as skin care, make up, sun care and hair care.

from different sources.
