Sonneborn Presents Comparative Technical Study of Rheology and Spreadability of SonneNatural® Vegetable Based Emollients vs. Standard Petrolatum Products

Parsippany, NJ - Sonneborn, a global leader in the manufacture and supply of specialty hydrocarbons, microcrystalline waxes and vegetable based emollients will present new data at the Society of Cosmetic Chemists 2012 Technology Showcase, December 7-8, at the New York City Hilton & Towers Hotel.

Committed to providing customers with premium products and superior technical capabilities, Sonneborn will highlight instrumental techniques used to compare critical sensory attributes of SonneNatural® vegetable based emollients versus that of traditional petrolatum products. Experimental findings will be presented, with insight on quantitative approaches to matching desired texture and spreadability.

According to Clay Rozic, Sonneborn Developmental Chemist and Lab Manager, "Just as we've tailored petrolatums for customers over the years, we are able to apply this expertise in meeting precise sensory targets with our SonneNatural® products."

Petrolatum has long been a staple ingredient for personal care applications and the benchmark against which transepidermal water loss (TEWL) through the skin is measured. In addition to the robust stability and functional benefits associated with petrolatum, it is widely agreed that the rheology, texture and spreadability of a vegetable-based alternative should match that of the hydrocarbon based benchmark. Sonneborn will showcase quantitiative data that can better define touch, feel and spreadabiltiy of materials. Based on this knowledge, Sonneborn offers a full line of SonneNatural, SonneNatural Selects and the SonneNatural 200 product series.

For more than 100 years, Sonneborn has been setting industry standards the world over for the finest possible specialty hydrocarbons in Personal Care, Pharmaceutical, Baking & Food, Agriculture, HI&I and Microcrystalline Wax and many other applications. With manufacturing facilities in North America and Europe and offices in major cities throughout the world, Sonneborn is the world's only specialty hydrocarbon producer that offers this global reach of expertise and depth of experience. Sonneborn LLC is owned by One Equity Partners ("OEP"), the private investment arm of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
