Functionality and benefits Product name Lipex® Bassol Lipex® Bassol C

The Lipex® Bassol range includes two cost efficient, natural and liquid emollients offered as alternatives to synthetic esters, paraffin oils and less stable commodity emollients.

INCI name Olus oil (EU) / Vegetable oil (US)

Lipex Bassol and Bassol C are both composed of optimised blends of purified 100% vegetable oils characterised by high oxidative stability and mildness, aspects of importance for a wide range of skin, body and hair care applications. The typical high amount of monounsaturated fatty acids makes them stable against oxidation, while at the same time keeping the products liquid at room temperatures. The main difference between the products is the appearance at low temperatures. By a careful selection of raw materials and optimised processing Lipex® Bassol C offers clear liquid appearance down to about 7°C. Lipex® Bassol forms small crystals already at room temperatures and is non-transparent below 20°C.

Physical form/Consistency at 20 °C Liquid Regulatory Status CTFA Recommended use levels Lipex® Bassol Emulsions 5-15% Lipex® Bassol C Emulsions 5-15% Shower and body oils 5-50% Baby oils 5-95% Packaging 185 kg drums

The stability of both products is achieved without additives and is superior compared to other well-known liquid emollients (Figure 1). Thanks to their vegetable origin the Lipex® Bassol products are biodegradable and renewable, making them attractive from an ecological perspective. They are also documented safe and non-irritant.

Applications Lipex® Bassol range offers high stability and a liquid form at room temperatures making the new emollients easy to handle in production and a safe use of natural oils for a wide range of applications. They are intended as basic and cost effective emollients for all types of skin care emulsions as well for anhydrous applications. The mildness and safety of both products makes them well suitable in products for sensitive skin, i.e. baby lotions. And both products can be mixed with mineral oils as well as esters in any proportions. Thanks to the clear liquid appearance of Lipex® Bassol C at low temperatures it is also well suited for clear liquid applications such as body, baby and massage oils and it offers also good functionality to sprayable emulsions, bath&shower, hair care and sun care applications and is also well suited for cold processing. Lipex® Bassol and Lipex® Bassol C are more stable than traditional vegetable emollients.
