COSMETIC

ADDITIVES

Graphene will be a real revolution in the cosmetic world and will be profitably used for eye area makeup, hair products, foundations, lipsticks, and antiaging

The cosmetics industry has boomed in recent years as one market with enormous growth potential. Among several industrial sectors, the cosmetics industry has considered and implemented nanotechnology-based principles in product management practices.

Graphene has many properties and characteristics that can improve cosmetic products with enhanced properties, physical and chemical characteristics, and biological activities that differ from bulk equivalents. Some advantages that may be achieved by incorporating graphene in cosmetics are enhanced performance, unique texture, protection of active substances, efficient drug delivery, and higher consumer acquiescence.

OUR PRODUCTS FOR COSMETIC INDUSTRY

GUP® DP Glycerol is a dispersion of graphene GUP® into glycerol designed to provide a solution using pre-dispersed graphene for several applications in the cosmetic industry, conferring unique properties and offering an environmentally friendly alternative to certain chemical constituents of cosmetics, aligning with the trend towards “green cosmetics.”

GUP® DP Glycerol is added to the host material to be processed. The optimum dosage levels should be determined with specific tests based on the required performance, host characteristics, processing conditions, and the presence of other fillers.

 

GUP® DP Paraffin Oil is a dispersion of few-layer graphene GUP® in paraffin oil, medical grade.

GUP® DP Paraffin Oil is added to the host material to be processed. The optimum dosage levels should be determined with specific tests based on the required performance, host characteristics, processing conditions, and the presence of other fillers.

GUP® DP Zea Mays Oil is a dispersion of few-layer graphene GUP® in zea mays oil.

GUP® DP Zea Mays Oil is added to the host material to be processed. The optimum dosage levels should be determined with specific tests based on the required performance, host characteristics, processing conditions, and the presence of other fillers.

Main Advantages of Graphene GUP® Products for Cosmetics

Electrical Conductivity

GUP®‘s electrical properties could enable new functionalities in cosmetic tools, such as electrically conductive face masks for more effective ingredient delivery

Targeted Delivery

The surface of graphene can be functionalized with various molecules to enable targeted delivery

Thermal Conductivity

GUP® allows for efficient heat distribution. Especially advantageous for skincare products that aim to regulate skin temperature

Controlled Release

The physicochemical properties of graphene allow for controlled release mechanisms. This can be particularly useful in products like anti-aging creams

 

UV Protection

GUP®‘s ability to absorb a wide range of light wavelengths allows for enhanced UV protection, which is critical in sun-care products

Enhanced Penetration

GUP® can facilitate better penetration of active ingredients through the skin’s barrier, thus improving the effectiveness of cosmetic products

High Surface Area

GUP®s high surface area-to-volume ratio enables efficient loading of active ingredients. This ensures a more uniform and sustained release of compounds

Sustainability

GUP® is derived from carbon, a readily available element, which makes it a sustainable material option for eco-conscious cosmetic lines
