Jarplex™ CU-WD is composed of the glycerides of vegetable fat extracted from the seed of the exotic Amazonian Cupuaçu fruit. It is completely water-dispersible in aqueous-based formulations, as well as compatible with surfactant based systems. It is also self-emulsifying. Jarplex™ CU-WD is a novel, “patent pending”, versatile, all-natural, and green ingredient.
Jarplex™ CU-WD is well suited for diverse cosmetic and dermatological applications, ensuring more reliable visual and skin feel aesthetics over a wide range of aqueous and non-aqueous conditions. Due to its superior water dispersion properties, Jarplex™ CU-WD is an effective emulsifier for all kinds of natural vegetable oils. It is especially well-suited for use in formulations with high concentrations of natural exotic materials. Jarplex™ CU-WD produces a unique feeling for rapid absorbing creams and lotions with a soothing non-greasy feel. Because it is made from natural vegetable lipid materials, Jarplex™ CU-WD is non-toxic, non-irritating, and readily biodegradable. It can be employed in a wide range of formulations including body washes, shampoos, conditioners, creams, lotions, sunscreen products, massage creams, and ointments.
