Thanks to their natural origin, our starch derivatives are playing an important role in the markets of personal care, characterized by an increasing interest in alternatives to animal-derived or synthetic ingredients.
Producing oral care products requires ingredients with many functionalities and properties: non-crystallizing humectant, non-cariogenic (Toothfriendly), shelf-life enhancer, plasticizer, mouthfeel, flavour masker, transparency, body-enhancing, etc.
Roquette offers a wide range of polyols, very well adapted to these applications.
NEOSORB® is a special Roquette formulated sorbitol.
The structure of NEOSORB® confers solubility, compatibility, viscosity and hygroscopicity. These properties make NEOSORB® a highly efficient humectant in toothpastes and mouthwashes.
It is especially suitable for gel toothpastes as its high refractive index facilitates the production of clear transparent gels. NEOSORB® can be an interesting alternative to glycerin.
SweetPearl® maltitol and XYLISORB® xylitolOther polyols, such as SweetPearl® maltitol and XYLISORB® xylitol, are used as humectants, moisturizers and flavouring agents in diverse toothpastes or mouthwashes formulations.
