Formulators of cosmetic and personal-care products are on an endless quest for new and innovative ingredients that are effective, safe and sustainable.
Traditionally, Succinic Acid was produced synthetically (from fossil oil) or by distillation of amber (expensive), and therefore it is not yet extensively used as an ingredient in the industry. However, with the introduction of affordable, 100% natural succinic acid the interest for this raw material in cosmetics and personal care has strongly increased.
Furthermore, research shows that succinic acid can deliver multiple benefits when used in topical products. This paper highlights a number some of reported topical uses of succinic acid, as well as results of preliminary studies demonstrating the anti-microbial activity of Biosuccinium® S, a 100% natural succinic acid.
