Alzo Introduces BioMade Hempseed Oil Emollients

Alzo is pleased to announce its introduction of its new line of BioMade Hempseed Oil emollients. This series of five novel and naturally derived esters, waxes, and polymers derived from hempseed oil provide unique cosmetic properties and textures. The line ranges from a low viscosity ester with a light, silky feel to a soft buttery paste to a viscous polymer with adhesion and film forming properties.  BioMade hempseed oil derivates are excellent natural alternatives to petroleum and synthetic materials. They provide a much broader scope of use than traditional hempseed oil as these derivatives have shown a significantly less degree of rancidity vs. conventionally-sourced hemp seed oil. In addition they are compatible with CBD oil which should create added interest to marketers and formulators of products containing this popular ingredient. BioMade hempseed oil emollients are 100% natural derived according to the ISO 16128 standard. Download the brochure here.
