Selvol Ultalux™ FP Product Information

Proven Technology for Skin Care and Color Cosmetics

Selvol Ultalux FP polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) works exceptionally well in skin care masks, eye shadows, eyeliners, mascaras and other color cosmetics applications.

Additionally, Selvol Ultalux FP is ideal for instant lifts and other antiaging formulations. Its low solution viscosity also makes it fantastic in BB creams and similar multifunctional products, like all-in-one sunscreens, moisturizers and foundations.

As a cosmetic-grade product, manufacturers have used Ultalux FP in personal care formulations for decades. At SEKISUI, we have tested it for high quality and purity. Our testing and third-party testing have proven it is nonirritating on skin.

As always, SEKISUI guarantees top quality in our Ultalux series.
