For several years "microplastics" in cosmetics have caused a big discussion. Now the environmentalists are taking a step further and talking about the so-called "liquid plastics", both in skin care products as well as in decorative cosmetics. These are plastics in dissolved form, such as acrylates crosspolymer, acrylates copolymer, polyquartenium or polyamide like nylon-6 and -12. The media are already intensifying their efforts to address this issue and are thereby increasing the pressure on the cosmetics industry.
Be a step ahead and formulate your cosmetic products without any plastic. Cosmetics that don't need these raw materials and therefore contribute to the protection of the world's oceans are highly popular among consumers. Discover RAHN-solutions for your successful business.




  • GenuPectin Pectinis characterized by its good gelling and complexing properties. It is a polysaccharide contained in citrus fruits or sugar beet.TEXT

  • Keltrol: This polysaccharide is produced by biotechno-logical process from the naturally occurring Xanthamo-nas Campestris, which can be found for example in cabbages. By using Xanthan Gum you will have positive influence on skin feeling, improved heat stability and optimised flow behaviour of emulsions and gels.

  • Genuvisco: Genuvisco types are used for emulsion stabilization as well as for sensory improvement. Carrageenans are anionic, sulfated polysaccharides which are derived from red algae. Different types of red algae contain different types of carrageenans. The difference is the three-dimensional structure which has direct influence on viscosity and consistency.

  • Kelcogel: Gellan Gum is able to stabilise fine particles like effect beads, pigments, glitters in suspension or to build up a strong gel structure and thereby can replace carbomers in emulsions. This polysaccharide is obtained via biotechnology by means of the bacterium Sphingomonas elodea, which occurs naturally, e.g. on water lily leaves.

  • UniqSens SFE System: This system allows you to formulate emulsifier-free. UniqSens SFE system combines the wetting properties of pectin, the emulsion-stabilizing functionality of xanthan gum and the sensory feeling improvement of carrageenan.
