Citropol HA is an emollient with a non-volatile, silicone-like sensory profile. Its medium viscosity and lightweight feel make Citropol HA a viable alternative to dimethicone 100 cPs. Citropol HA imparts distinct lubricating properties with rich shine and feel in personal care and cosmetics formulations, even in concentrations as low as 1 %. Citropol HA is compatible in skin care, hair care, deodorant, antiperspirant, and color cosmetic applications.

All P2 Science products are biorenewable, biodegradable, and biocompatible. They do not compromise human and environmental safety.
