- Product Details & Information
Cosmetics manufacturers are continually seeking ingredients combining the best in durability, color and texture with the absolute safety demanded by their industry. An adaptable liquid emollient, pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate (PTIS) is one of these high-value ingredients. For over 70 years, Acme-Hardesty has been providing manufacturers across multiple industries with the synthetic and natural oleochemicals they need. We work with the best pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate suppliers in the business.
The Acme-Hardesty formulation of pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate, EnSense Luxe PTIS, is a synthetic compound derived from isostearic acid. Designed for use in the cosmetics industry, this non-aqueous formula offers extensive binding and thickening capabilities, as well as water resistance for low migration. EnSense Luxe PTIS balances these qualities with effective film-forming and minimal stickiness for products that apply easily while maintaining their integrity.
A safe synthetic compound, our pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate is non-toxic and produced with the highest standards. It contains zero hazardous substances and has no possibility of dangerous reactions under typical processing conditions.
- Uses & Applications
As EnSense Luxe PTIS has no sensitizing effects, it is well-suited for cosmetics products tailored to consumers with sensitive skin. This skin-conditioning emollient works well in emulsions, providing a sumptuous texture and lingering silkiness while allowing for fine-tuning of the mixture's viscosity.
Pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate also facilitates the easy suspension and distribution of pigments and other ingredients. This capability combines with the slick feel and film-forming properties of EnSense Luxe PTIS to make this product invaluable to manufacturers of lipsticks and lip glosses. Perfect for developing long-wearing lip color, EnSense Luxe PTIS will fortify products with bleed resistance while providing a high-gloss and beautiful color payoff.
The combination of safety and stability inherent to EnSense Luxe PTIS also makes it ideal for other decorative cosmetics. Cream products such as blush and eye shadow are popular for their exceptional color delivery, and the advent of high-impact contouring and all-over color has created demand for skin products that can be applied anywhere. Using EnSense Luxe PTIS, manufacturers can design non-toxic formulas offering varying levels of color intensity for application to any part of the body.
With its unique, luxurious texture and non-toxic formulation, EnSense Luxe PTIS allows manufacturers to capitalize on the benefits of pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate. This dynamic compound benefits multiple products with its capacity to serve as a carrier. Whether your product calls for the suspension of UV filters, glitter, shimmer or all-natural exfoliants, you will value the ability to create a stable, desirable emulsion.
