Dr Straetmans, available locally through Meganede, has launched a new alternative to palm oil. Dermofeel GSC palm oil free is formed by stearic acid derived from grape seed oil and citric acid which are linked by a glycol unit. Because of the issues around sustainability of palm oil and, as a result of recent price increases for the raw material, Dr Straetmans has developed this ingredient to help formulators achieve natural claims in a cost-efficient manner. It can be used in a variety of cosmetic products, has excellent skin and eye compatibility that means it can be used in almost all o/w emulsions.
