THE ZENIGLOSS® PLATFORM is a unique technology that produces a complex polyester polymer formed by a unique two-step process.
In step one, castor oil is polymerized with succinic acid. The result is a branched polymer that provides good adhesion qualities for pigments, excellent barrier formation, with long-lasting emolliency.
Step two is a capping reaction, in which residual hydroxyl groups are reacted with isostearic acid. This step creates a polyester, resulting in a high-gloss polymer, that, when added to a finished product, imparts a healthy glow to skin, sun, color, and hair.
ZENIGLOSS® UP (ZENOLIN®) is a substantive polymeric gloss agent, plasticizer, wetting vehicle, reduced odor, SPF booster (5,700 mw)/ Natural lanolin replacement, SPF booster (5,700 mw).
INCI: Castor Isosteareate Succinate
