Innovacos: Cold Process with PolyAquol™



We are delighted to share Innovacos’ cold process emulsifiers. PolyAquol™ are cost-effective, highly efficacious emulsifiers for both O/W and W/O systems. Cold process is an option for both emulsion types.

With energy prices increasing, cold process formulations have never been more sought-after and important to the personal care industry. Not only are they a more cost-effective alternative, but they are also more eco-friendly and sustainable.

Please find our interactive formulation brochure towards the bottom of this email, which showcases Innovacos’ cold process formulations.
