Biodegradable and kind to the skin
KURARAY POVAL™ LV grades from Kuraray help the cosmetics and personal-care industry produce products that are safe and sustainable. These biodegradable PVOH polymers are produced in compliance with stringent GMP guidelines. A complex purification process gives KURARAY POVAL™ LV grades their especially low methanol content (0.3 percent for grades produced in Germany). Consequently, these polyvinyl alcohols are well-tolerated by the skin and environmentally friendly.
For appealing, transparent peel-off masks
The personal-care industry uses water-soluble polymers as binding agents for water-based skin- and hair-care products such as shower gels, shampoo and hair colorants. As hydrophilic film formers, PVA polymers are used in exacting decorative cosmetics such as mascara. In addition, KURARAY POVAL™ LV grades are excellent for use in sunscreens and for peel-off masks with unique transparency. Another big advantage: Kuraray provides extensive product documentation that is very useful for customers in the formulation of new products.
Benefit from KURARAY POVAL™ LV grades – for cosmetics and personal-care products that set new standards of safety and sustainability.
