Chemyunion launches a new plant-derived deodorant active and targets global markets

Chemyunion recently showcased a new deodorant active designed as an alternative to traditional antimicrobial ingredients such as triclosan or farnesol. With high investments in research and development and a fast-expanding product portfolio, the Brazil-based supplier of personal care ingredients is targeting global markets, in particular the USA and Europe.

Hebeatol Plus DEO is a xylitol ester with an antimicrobial activity and deodorant function. According to Chemyunion, this new active can be used as a safe substitute to triclosan or farnesol in traditional deodorant formulations.

This ingredient of vegetable origin is obtained from xylitol and caprylic acid. Xylitol is a pentol sugar, which main industrial source is the reuse of grain by-products (i.e. corncobs), while caprylic acid, is obtained from plant-based oils extracted in a sustainable way and certified by RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil). “In addition to being obtained from renewable sources, the synthetic route of Hebeatol Plus DEO has been developed to meet most of the requirements of an ecologically-friendly process, generating a 100% biodegradable molecule,” claims Chemyunion.

The inhibition of the skin’s bacterial and fungal flora is one of the main ways to control the body’s unpleasant odours. However, health concerns linked to anti-microbial actives have sparkle intensive researches for a broader range of efficient actives from natural origin.

According to Chemyunion, Hebeatol Plus DEO eliminates 99.9% of odour causing microorganisms. The non-ionic surfactant molecule reduces surface tension of liquids and increases solubility of materials thus reducing the adherence of microorganisms on the skin.

Hebeatol Plus Deo reduces the number of initial colonies by 99.9% in all time points tested for Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus and Corynebacterium xerosis.
