INCI Name: Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2
Liponate™ BDP is a paste-like ester with smooth spreadability and touch. Although viscous, this material is easy to use in formulations. Liponate™ BDP was developed as a substitute for lanolin.
In lipsticks and color cosmetiecs, Liponate™ BDP adds a glossy finish and increases color payoff, leaving vivid color on the lips. Liponate® BDP creates a strong stick structure while still providing a creamy application and feel. When added to color cosmetics formulations, Liponate™ BDP improves smoothness and glide.
In skin care formulations, Liponate™ BDP provides a substantive film to protect and moisturize the skin. In hair care, Liponate™ BDP adds structure and glide to hair styling products such as pomades and hair waxes.
