Organic compounds

Organic compounds are an inherent part of skin care products. These ingredients are structurally similar to natural body compounds, making them efficient in many functions. For example, they easily penetrate the layers of skin, stimulate the synthesis of skin proteins, fight free radicals, and ''dissolve" dead skin cells. Thus, organic compounds visibly ameliorate skin wrinkling, sagging, and scaling.

Cetyl Esters (esters of a C14 alcohol with C16 - C18 acids) are waxy solids or flakes with melting points near body temperature (43 - 47°C). It is an emollient ester that provides lubricity, a body, and a soft glossy feel.

Cetyl Ricinoleate

Cetyl Ricinoleate is an off-white waxy solid derived by esterification of castor oil fatty acids with cetyl alcohol.

Chrysin is a flavonoid found in honey, propolis, and many medicinal and edible plants (passionfruit, carrot, mushroom, and chamomile) with multiple beneficial effects on the skin, including an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification effects.

Cinnamidopropyltrimonium Chloride is a hair color protector. This additive is patented as a high-activity quaternized UV absorber, but it is not a category I sunscreen.

Cocamide MEA is a non-ionic amide that provides excellent viscosity building and foam stabilization in anionic-based systems such as shampoos, hand washes, and body cleansers.

Cocamidopropyl betaine
Cocamidopropyl betaine is a premium surfactant derived from coconut fatty acids. Betaine-derived surfactants are classified as amphoteric.
Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine is a coconut-derived amido-amine, a cationic surfactant with excellent foaming properties for cleansing formulation for skin and hair care.
Coco-Betaine is an amphoteric and biodegradable surfactant that allows the development of extremely mild formulations, with rich, abundant, and creamy foam formation, and an excellent sensory profile.
Menthyl ester/menthol, contained in peppermint essential oil, have an apparent cooling effect when applied to the skin. However, Cooling Agent do not affect body temperature, the coolness is just perceived.
Di-PPG-2 Myreth-10 Adipate
Approved for use in Europe, Cromollient™ SCE, a patented 100% active alkoxylated di-ester emollient that is both 'hydro-active' and surfactant-friendly.

Decyloxazolidinone is a heterocyclic organic compound with an oxazolidine ring and lipophilic decyl (C10 - 10 carbon atom chain) "tail".

Dehydroacetic acid (DHA)
Dehydroacetic acid (DHA) is a broad spectrum of fungicide; it has potent inhibition on bacteria, mold, and yeast, especially mold.

Di-C12-15 Alkyl Fumarate is a soft, white paste (solid at 25°C or 77°F) with a mild characteristic odor, that melts near body temperatures (melt point ~40°C or 104°F). It delivers a light and silky emollience with excellent anti-tack properties.

Dicaprylyl carbonate
Dicaprylyl carbonate is a diester (double ester) of carbonic acid and caprylyl alcohol (1-Octanol containing eight carbon atoms) and is the powerful performer in fast-spreading emollients.
Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate

Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate comprises 2-(4-Diethylamino-2-hydroxybenzoyl)- benzoic acid hexyl ester and is a stable UVA absorber. It is a yellow melt that crystallizes upon storage. It remelts easily without any decomposition by heating it up to approx. 70 – 80 °C.

Diethylhexyl Maleate

Diethylhexyl Maleate is a light lipophilic ester, a clear, almost colorless liquid, that exhibits excellent properties fo

Dimer Dilinoleyl Dimer Dilinoleate

Dimer Dilinoleyl Dimer Dilinoleate is a substantive liquid ester with both intense cushion and a high degree of gloss.


Dimethyl Phenylbutanol (4-Methyl-4-Phenyl-2-Pentanol; Vetikol) is a clear, colorless liquid with a low pleasant odor. It exhibits potent anti-bacterial activity fairly specific against gram positives responsible for body odor.

Dipentaerythrityl Tetrabehenate/Polyhydroxystearate (known under the trade name Pelemol® DP-144B) is the reaction product of Dipentaerythritol, Tetrapolyhydroxystearate acid, and behenic acid. It is 100% active, hydrophobic, tacky, and substantive.

Disodium Phenyl Dibenzimidazole Tetrasulfonate

Disodium Phenyl Dibenzimidazole Tetrasulfonate is a very effective and photostable UV-A II filter. The water-soluble UV-A absorber has a strong absorbance from 320 – 370 nm with an extinction of 800 at max. λ335 nm.
