AAK Personal Care launches Lipex SheaClear, a completely clear liquid shea oil that softens and moisturizes the skin. It also improves shine and softness in hair. The new product will be presented at in-cosmetics in Barcelona.

The physical and sensory attributes of Lipex SheaClear make it an ideal ingredient for skin, hair and face oils where absolute clarity and low color is desired. The product has a high level (6-8%) of functional unsaponifiables that helps to revitalize the skin. It adds moisturizing and softening properties in all types of clear oil formulations, without any adverse crystallization effects or settling over time.

“Lipex SheaClear complements our wide range of shea based ingredients. It is developed to meet an increased demand of clear, completely transparent oils. This trend is especially apparent in the US and Europe”, says Jari Alander, Technical Director at AAK Personal Care.

Lipex SheaClear also improves shine and softness in hair. It can be used in high-end cosmetic formulations as the main emollient or in combination with other oils and esters to customize the sensory properties. Due to a low melting point, it is also suitable for cold processed emulsions.
