MinaSolve™ Hexam+ is a dual-functional blend, designed for the microbial protection of cosmetics and as skin moisturizer. It is especially suited for application in products for sensitive skin. This synergistic blend of Pentylene Glycol and Hexamidine Diisethionate (patent pending) shows a broad-spectrum anti-microbial activity that ensures complete protection of cosmetic formulations. The blend is well suited for aqueous solutions, emulsions and surfactant-based systems.

The long lasting skin moisturizing effect of MinaSolve™ Hexam+ is comparable to that of glycerin. It contributes to a pleasant, non-sticky and non-greasy skin-feel in personal care products. MinaSolve™ Hexam+ contains a unique quality of Hexamidine Diisethionate, manufactured via a proprietary eco-improved process that inherently avoids the presence of toxic impurities. It is based on Pentylene Glycol (Pentiol Green+), sustainably made from bio-based raw materials (corn cobs and sugar cane bagasse).

Minasolve is a French cosmetic ingredients supplier, with a special focus on multifunctional, nature-derived and sustainable products. Today the personal care industry is striving to find natural ingredients that function as well as their synthetic counterparts. Minasolve, together with its sister company Pennakem/USA, has made great strides in this area by introducing Pentiol Green+, a corncob, sugar cane bagasse based version of Pentylene Glycol. The ingredient has been granted EcoCert and COSMOS certification in the EU and has received the Green Ingredient Silver Award at In-Cosmetics in 2014. This innovation allows customers to use a green variant of a well-known ingredient at competitive price, without any formulation challenges. The high quality of Pentiol Green+ was recognized by many cosmetic producers all over the world, including luxury brands.
