Personal Care Product Applications

At SEKISUI, we make manufacturing and formulating cosmetics, hair care and skin care products smarter and simpler.

Our Selvol™ Ultalux polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) cosmetic grades safely and effectively lend a range of functional attributes to hair, skin and color cosmetic formulations. Meanwhile, Ultalux polymers offer manufacturers a range of options, including better film formation, adhesion and viscosity control for personal care products.

Furthermore, third-party laboratory testing has confirmed the safety and quality of Ultalux polymers. These tests include the Epiderm in vitro irritation test and other vital third-party testing. In fact, formulators may require these tests to ensure PVOH and PVOH copolymers are safe, high-quality and highly effective in personal care applications. 

Available in five grades, the Ultalux range offers a broad spectrum of performance attributes. The SEKISUI Selvol Ultalux line includes outstanding PVOH copolymer grades SC and AD. These new offerings provide excellent adhesion, lower viscosity and good tensile strength in film formation.

Testing has shown that Ultalux SC produces a 15% improvement in hydration in a facial mask formulation compared to another formulation using a conventional PVOH polymer.
