Functionality and benefits Product name Lipex® BC INCI name INCI: Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil Physical form/Consistency at 20 °C Triglycerides, Solid (mp 35 °C)

One problem with the lower-melting solids in stick formulations is their higher sensitivity to temperature fluctuations compared to the high-melting ingredients. If the system is poorly formulated, a phenomenon known as “bloom” may occur. Such bloom consists of fat and wax crystals growing on the surface. Bloom formation has several causes: poor compatibility between ingredients, for example, or unsuitable processing or storage conditions.

Regulatory Status CTFA, JSIC

Lipex® BC (for bloom control) is stable in its beta-prime form, which makes it ideally suited for decorative cosmetics in combination with commonly used waxes and liquid oils.

Recommended use levels 5 -10 %

Applications

Packaging Carton 25 kg Product Data Sheet/Article number 8522

Lipex® BC is a lower-melting solid fat characterised by rapid crystallisation and good compatibility with other stick and pencil ingredients. It provides structure to the formulation at room temperature, but melts at body temperature which increases pay-off and creaminess in the stick formulation. Melting profile Lipex® BC

Furthermore, it has very good resistance to fat bloom and recrystallisation on storage. It can be added at 5-10% in a stick formulation to provide increased pay-off, without any loss of stability. Lipex® BC combines well with most commonly used natural and synthetic waxes, in extruded and moulded pencils as well as in moisturising lipstick formulations. If a higher melting point is desired Lipex® BC can preferentially be formulated together with Akofine P. All of AarhusKarlshamn products are manufactured to the highest standards in state-of-the-art processing facilities. Special care is taken to select raw materials that fulfil all requirements for purity, identity and quality.
