Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, a cosmetic-grade resin, is the methyl ester of hydrogenated gum rosin. This liquid resin is given a special steam-sparging treatment to assure minimum odor. With its low odor and low vapor pressure, it is particularly useful as a fragrance fixative. It has excellent solubility and compatibility with non-polar and many polar ingredients in cosmetic applications, contributing to both adhesion and gloss. It is the substitute for Eastman® product.
It is a light amber liquid resinous tackifier and plasticizer, being hydrogenated, having marked resistance to aging. A consistent mild odor is assured after giving a special steam purification treatment. It is soluble in usual apolar organic solvents, alcohols and ethyl and butyl acetates, has a superior cold resistance ability and may maintain a valid viscosity under -40 deg C circumstance, forms a continuous film on skin, hair or nails.
