Citropol HA

INCI: Polycitronellol Acetate


Citropol® HA is an emollient with a non-volatile, silicone-like sensory profile. Its medium viscosity and lightweight feel make Citropol HA a viable alternative to dimethicone 100 cPs.

Citropol HA imparts distinct lubricating properties with rich shine and feel in personal care and cosmetics formulations, even in concentrations as low as 1%. Citropol HA is compatible in skin care, hair care, deodorant, antiperspirant, and color cosmetic applications.
