Hydrogenated Polydecene

Hydrogenated polydecene (HP) is a collective name of a group of multi-faceted emollients derived from a polydecene hydrogenation process. The level of hydrogenation impacts on properties of the resulting compounds, so there are numerous ingredients INCI marked as hydrogenated polydecene, which have different sensory profiles, dispersion ability, and spreadability.

Pure and completely safe, the HPs are oily inescapable cosmetic ingredients suitable for all skin types, specifically the sensitive ones. Formulations with these chemically inert compounds will enjoy silky and velvety sensations. Excellent wetting capabilities of Hydrogenated polydecene are ideal for suncare and make-up applications and complete innocuousness - ideal for babies and sensitive skins. Extraordinary pigment dispersion properties provide improved color uniformity and spreadability for cosmetics.

Safety

In vivo test with 22 volunteers with atopic and dry skins applied Hydrogenated polydecene twice daily for 28 days showed no intolerance or irritation, and positive effect on dryness, scaling, and roughness.

Dermal penetration of HP showed no percutaneous absorption deeper than the external skin layer.
