Bee Sweet Honey
Body Wash

This cold-processed body wash has a smooth, honey-like appearance and luxurious texture, thanks to COSMOS® Certified GENUVISCO® CG-129 Carrageenan. Our lambda grade provides viscosity in surfactant systems that cannot be thickened with salt.

Clearly, It’s The Fluid Gel Exfoliating Foam Cleanser

COSMOS® certified KELCOGEL® CG-LA (E) Gellan Gum helps this eye-catching cleansing foam stay water-thin but exceptionally clear and stable as it suspends actives like gently exfoliating jojoba beads.

My Beauty Pillow
Day-to-Night Cream

A blend of COSMOS® certified low-acyl (LA) and high-acyl (HA) gellan gums provide stabilization, gloss and a soft, cushiony feel. This great moisturizing cream has clean, stiff pick-up without the use of synthetic polymers. HA gellan gum adds the light feel and structure while LA gellan gum helps suspend and stabilize the emulsion.

Lotus Enlighten
You Shampoo

Our shampoo has a luxurious feel and mimics the rheology of traditional, salt-thickened shampoos. COSMOS® certified ARBALON® R-50 (EV) Cellulose Liquid suspends the pearlescent mica without altering viscosity or feel. Our COSMOS® certified grade of lambda carrageenan thickens without gelling, creating a thick, smooth texture and high viscosity.

Let’s Get Physical
Sunscreen

The removal of emulsifiers and other lipid stabilizers contributes to the light, non-greasy texture and also makes the formula cold-processable. Our pectin-based lotion format can incorporate physical UV protection such as titanium dioxide. It goes on quickly without leaving a white cast.

3 Ways to Clean Up with Bio-Based Ingredients

1. Sustainable is the new clean.

Consumers are developing a better understanding of how their personal care habits can impact the environment – especially our waterways. Biodegradable ingredients break down to water, CO2 and organic matter within six months.

2. Help maintain skin health.

Another cleansing trend going mainstream is a better appreciation for managing stress and skin health. Goodbye harsh surfactants that can dry out skin. Say hello to gentler, calming ingredients that keep moisture in without upsetting skin’s pH and acid mantle.

3. Have fun with innovative textures.

Suspend exfoliating scrubbers or beads. Go luxuriously thick or water-thin or even waterless. New powders, bars, gels and jellies add life to the daily routine.

Nature-Powered Ingredients to Help

ARBALON® Cellulose Liquid

Our biodegradable, fermentation-derived stabilizer has a unique cellulose structure that forms an invisible 3D net to evenly suspend scrubbers, decorative or fragrance beads and more. Effective in high-surfactant or low/no water formulations. Ready to use and fully activated.

KELTROL® Xanthan Gum

This versatile, fermentation-derived ingredient is known for its unique smooth flow behavior, silky feel and even texture. It provides high viscosity at low shear rates for foams, suspensions and emulsion stability. It also provides low viscosity at high shear for pumpability. Plus, you get exceptional stability and thickening characteristics for a wide range of products.

GENU® Carrageenan

A multifunctional water-binding agent, this ingredient provides a creamy texture to emulsions and a honey-like flow as it locks in moisture to increase hydration. It can be used to replace synthetics in shampoos and other products.
