Citropol V5

  • CAS No.- 2417284-25-2, 1120-21-4, 629-50-5
  • INCI.- Polycitronellol Acetate (and) Undecane (and) Tridecane

Citropol V5 imparts distinct volatility and spreadability properties, providing a natural alternative to low viscosity, volatile silicones. This volatile emollient will allow formulators to create high-performing, renewable, biodegradable products when used as low as 1% in cosmetic and personal care products. Citropol V5 is compatible in skin care, hair care, deodorant, and anti-perspirant applications.

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

Did You Know?
Citropol is made by a clean, mild, and high yielding conversion process called Process Intensified Continuous Etherification (PICETM)

Citropol V5 is sustainably manufactured from naturally-derived feedstocks. It is made to meet the highest standards of the cosmetics and personal care industries. The raw material terpenes are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified pine, and are upcycled via side-stream turpentine from the paper making process.

Citropol V5 is inherently biodegradable according to the OECD 301 B biodegradability test.
