EstoGel® Green: naturalness at the heart of cosmetic ingredients

This eco-responsible ingredient is the result of several years of research conducted by the PolymerExpert teams, who were keen to develop a 100% natural-origin oil gelling agent that meets the current innovation needs and challenges of the cosmetics industry in every respect: combining naturalness and technicality.

Many markets are looking for eco-designed alternatives to fossil products with equivalent or even better performance. EstoGel® Green is derived from renewable resources (vegetable oils) and therefore helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it is also in line with the ever-increasing demand for products of natural origin.

EstoGel® Green meets the needs of cosmetic formulators for bio-based ingredients that can substitute similar rheological products of petroleum origin.

Adrien Faure cosmetic project manager at PolymerExpert tells us about L’EstoGel® Green and its advantages for formulators:

“This is a new oil gelling agent, 100% natural origin and approved COSMOS. This rheology modifier with excellent suspensory properties, provides non-brittle, transparent and rheofluidifying gels. Based on supramolecular technology, EstoGel® Green gives cosmetic products a very pleasant sensory feel. This new grade offers flexibility in the nature of the associated emollients.


Easy to implement, it meets the expectations and constraints of the cosmetic industry. Its versatility, allows it to develop various galenics for a multitude of applications. It could be an asset in the formulation of your solid cosmetics.

« The versatility of EstoGel® Green allows formulators to be as creative as they want to be»

Adrien Faure, Cosmetic project manager @ PolymerExpert

EstoGel® Green has no known equivalent in 100% natural origin to date.

EstoGel® Green, a French success story

EstoGel® Green was conceived, developed and produced in Pessac, near Bordeaux. This 100% biobased oil gelling polymer was developed in collaboration with the ITERG (industrial technical center specialized in fats), an institute also based in the Bordeaux area. ITERG provides PolymerExpert with one of the components of EstoGel® Green.

We are proud to involve the local economy and allow the made in France to shine.
