Cosmetics from red maple
The canadian company Renmatix Inc. is taking advantage of this potential and manufactures a cosmetic active ingredient of the red maples biomass. This ingredient is called Celltice™.
Renmatix utilizes wood chips of North American red maple trees and unlocks Cellulose and Lignin in a patented process. This patented Plantrose® process uses water in its supercritical state to gently pull unmodified Cellulose and Lignin away from its structure.
Celltice™ purposefully delivers a variety of industry leading benefits in personal care, functioning as both an active and an excipient in formulation.
Celltice™ offers emulsifying properties, it acts in a micellar-free pickering mechanism to stabilize the interface of oil and water at low levels.
It is available in two varities: a coloured Celltice™ NM and uncoloured Type Celltice™ WM.
In addition to the technical functionality Celltice™ offers three key benefits in personal care:
- Gently fosters skin health
- Protects against environment stress
- Enables indulgent textures
TER Chemicals application laboratory has already successfully worked with Celltice™ products. See the latest formulation of a facial cream with Celltice™ WM.
