Project Description

EMotion® Air

Evanescent emollient


EMotion® Air is a naturally derived emollient with extraordinary texturizing properties. Designed following the Circular Economy model, it is the best choice to create high-performance formulations, such as skin care, make-up and hair care.Sourced from High Oleic Sunflower Seed Oil (no GMO), it offers a sustainable alternative to light cosmetic emollients like silicones, allowing formulators to meet the increasing demand for green products.


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?

EMotion® Air is the result of a perfect combination between nature and innovation. Through the extraction of Pelargonic Acid from high oleic sunflower seed oil, advanced technologies and exclusive manufacturing processes are here involved for the creation of this unique sustainable ester.

What does it do?

EMotion® Air, developed integrating the principles of green chemistry, is a plant-based emollient which offers the perfect solution to create outstanding textures from natural materials.
Besides its origin from a natural and ethical raw material, EMotion® Air is an ultra-light and dry feel emollient, particularly suitable for face, body and hair care applications.

In a few words

  • Exclusive sustainable ester
  • Biodegradable alternative to silicones for specific applications
  • Wide range of sensorial performances
  • Excellent stability and compatibility in formulation

Added value

Sunflower (Helianthus annuus), emblem of happiness, is one of the most known vegetable oil around the globe. Golden blossoms seed, source of essential fatty acids, mainly linoleic acid and oleic acid, are here involved to develop something exclusive for the new generation of green cosmetics. BeauSens® Air, not only an emollient, but a unique ingredient able to enrich the formula satisfying the ecological and skin-friendly requirements, nevertheless providing high level of performance.
