In the last quarter of 2010, the Danish government had forbidden the manufacture of cosmetic products that had paraben as an ingredient for children under the age of three. Symrise, a German fragrances & speciality chemicals manufacturer, has come up with Hydrolite® 6, a paraben-free skincare option for children. The company claims that Hydrolite® 6 increases the effectivenss of the preservatives, such as potassium sorbate and dehydroacetate, which renders the addition of parabens as unnecessary.
Ravikumar Pillai, Global Product Director Actives Symrise Life Essentials, said, “The initiative started by the Danish government on paraben-free skincare products for children confirms that we pursue the right path with our high quality ingredients that support health and well-being. Owing to state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and our employees’ expertise, we develop cutting-edge cosmetic ingredients, such as Hydrolite® 6. In particular, we thereby include consumers’ desire for both skin-friendly as well as highly active ingredients. Here we intend to maintain creating highlights in the future.”
