    Meadowfoam Estolide


Elementis makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

MEADOWESTOLIDE® is a unique, functionally significant derivative of Meadowfoam Seed Oil. The development of this estolide represents a new level of advanced ingredient technology. The estolide is a dimeric molecule, which is structurally sophisticated and functionally active. MEADOWESTOLIDE® provides measureable and meaningful consumer benefits. In hair, the estolide improves intra-fiber moisture retention and thereby imparts protection from thermal damage, while restoring the elasticity and reducing the coefficient of friction of the hair cuticle surface to prevent mechanical damage.

In skincare systems, MEADOWESTOLIDE® helps to adjust the hydration levels of the interstitial spaces and provides significant moisturization benefits. These benefits are often perceived as softer, more pliant tissue. Initial investigations suggest that the estolide will prove to be a very important agent in protecting skin from the damaging effects of a variety of common causes. MEADOWESTOLIDE® has been incorporated into decorative cosmetics where significant attributes were observed including improved elegance in product texture and, in the case of pigment delivery, considerably better color pay-off. This product is compliant with COSMOS, Vegan, and ISO 16128 requirements.
