Minasolve will launch MinaCare Hexcine (INCI name: ethyl hexyl glycerine) on Stand 519 at the SCS Formulate trade show to be held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry (UK) from 13 to 14 November 2012.
This product will complete Minasolve’s range of parabens substitutes, allowing the company to offer a wide array of these substitutes that have excellent moistening and cleaning properties. This range already includes 1,2-hexanediol, capryloyl glycine, caprylyl glycol, hexamidine diisethionate and pentylene glycol.
Minasolve provides ingredients to the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries, delivering its products across five continents. The company is experiencing a strong growth in its activity, with a six-fold increase in turnover in three years, and is developing activity in the UK, where it is looking for a distributor.
Having origins in the pharmaceutical sector, Minasolve uses three European factories approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Minasolve’s production method is also under quality-assurance supervision, which enables the company to guarantee a sound production-process control, as well as significant traceability.
Minasolve has confirmed its place in the natural-origin ingredients market thanks to its range of bio-ingredients. The latest ingredient of vegetable origin launched by the company is MinaCare EGCG (INCI name: epigallocatechin gallate), which is extracted from green tea and is known for its antioxidant properties that protect skin from photo-aging.
Minasolve’s pentylene glycol, MinaCare Pentiol Green ECOCERT, which is derived from vegetable raw materials, is popular internationally. This ingredient also improves sustainable development, as it is derived from sugar-cane bagasse or corn cobs, which would otherwise be burned.
The company’s MinaCare Elage ECOCERT (INCI name: ellagic acid) is increasingly used as a replacement for kojic acid in lightening creams. Equally, Minasolve’s high-quality Resveratrol (>98%) which is of vegetable origin and is renowned in Japan, is experiencing stronger and stronger demand.
Finally, Minasolve has also developed cGMP Propyl Gallate, a pharmaceutical excipient that is used as an antioxidant and responds to the latest pharmaceutical-regulation requirements.
Founded in 2007, Minasolve belongs to Minafin Group, which has 540 staff. Minasolve develops activity in the bio-ingredient domain, dedicated to the expansion and manufacturing of innovative ingredients using its production factories and pilot plants. The company focuses specifically on the personal care and pharmaceutical ingredients markets.
The majority of Minasolve’s installations are inspected by the US health authority Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Minasolve will exhibit at SCS Formulate, the trade show for the cosmetics industry, which will take place from 13 to 14 November at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry (UK).
The two other commercial entities of the Minafin Group are Minakem and Pennakem.
