Lactic Acid expert, Corbion Purac, joins In-Cosmetics with a strengthened range of new applications and formulations across the Personal Care segment.

Corbion Purac, Booth #4C36, In-Cosmetics, April 1-3, 2014, Hamburg, Germany.

The Brazilian market is the third biggest cosmetics and toiletries market in the world and is the theme of this year's global Personal Care ingredients exhibition, In-Cosmetics, which takes place from April 1-3 in Hamburg, Germany. The exhibition's Brazil Product Trail features exhibitor stands that display unique ingredients and formulations with relevance to Brazil. With a growing global presence that includes operations in Brazil and other Latin American countries, Corbion Purac is the market leader in high quality, Lactic Acid-based ingredients. Joining the In-Cosmetics' Brazil Trail, Corbion Purac will present formulations for feminine hygiene, one of the hottest topics in the Brazilian Bath and Shower segment.

"Soaps have a pH value ranging from 8 to 10, and even soap-free washes and gels based on other surfactants often have a pH higher than 5.5. These can disturb the pH of the intimate area and affect its natural protection mechanism," explained Dr. Sylvia Nefkens, Senior Technical Marketing Specialist Personal Care at Corbion Purac. "Mild washes that are adjusted to the natural physiological pH of the vaginal area with L-Lactic Acid, and buffered to maintain that pH upon dilution, help maintain the balance and the natural protection of the intimate area."

Known as 'the body's own Lactic Acid', Corbion Purac's L-Lactic Acid products are the products of choice for feminine hygiene, both for pH-adjustment and buffering of intimate cleansing products.Corbion Purac's has recently obtained COSMOS approval for most of its PURAC� and PURASAL� ingredients for personal care, demonstrating its continued commitment to provide natural, biobased and sustainable ingredients. At In-Cosmetics Corbion Purac will showcase its expanding range of solutions in hair conditioning, moisturization, anti-aging and men's care.

Corbion Purac's experts will be available at booth #4C36 at In-Cosmetics for technical, formulation and commercial advice, and providing samples for visitors to try.
