Oleon's beauty routine
Oleon's beauty routine
As our skin comes in contact with environmental pollutants each day, it’s essential to get them gently removed to avoid clogged pores, dullness and acne. If not already part of your daily routine, we have summarized our beauty routine below as washing your face is one of the most basic and essential step to include into your daily routine. This can be done twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.

Jolee 7750: A Natural Silicone-like Emollient
Jolee 7750: A Natural Silicone-like Emollient
Including Jolee 7750 into your formulations can offer many sustainability benefits to meet your consumer’s demands. As this silicone-like emollient is fully based on renewable sources such as palm kernel oil, wheat, sugar beet, and sugar cane, this specialty ester has a small ecological footprint. Moreover, one of the building blocks of our Jolee 7750 is produced from fusel oil, which is a by-product in the bioethanol industry and thus contributes to the waste reduction of our planet. As member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Jolee 7750 is available as RPSO Mass Balance. On top, it is non bio-accumulative, completely biodegradable, and therefore not harmful for the environment.
Caprylic in cosmetics
Caprylic in cosmetics
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (also known as MCT) is a commonly used emollient in cosmetics and personal care products. This liquid oil is produced by esterification of glycerin and medium-chain fatty acids derived from coconut or palm oil. Oleon’s MCT, Radia 7104, is palm-based. This product is COSMOS certified and NaTrue approved and has a natural origin index of 1. Radia 7104 is a clear and odorless product and thus contributes to a positive consumer experience.
Suncare - A hot topic year-round
Suncare - A hot topic year-round
Suncare is also a hot topic during your annual skitrip, as the sun’s rays can damage skin even quicker at a higher altitude. Not only on holidays, but also throughout the rest of the year it is highly recommended to wear sunscreen. As most of the consumers don’t like rich creams on their face, it is necessary to formulate light facial sunscreens. To improve skin feeling, light emollients play an important role. Oleon’s emollient Jolee 7202 is a very light emollient and has a dry, powdery afterfeel which makes it an ideal emollient for daily suncare formulations.
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
A Global Standard For Sustainable Palm Oil. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a not-for-profit, international membership organization that unites stakeholders from the different sectors of the palm oil industry: oil palm producers, processors and traders, consumer goods manufacturers, retailers, banks/investors, and environmental and social non-governmental organizations (NGOs), to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil production.

Don't forget to add humectants to your formulation! Since dry or dehydrated skin lacks water, cosmetic formulations can temporarily reverse this by a process called moisturization. Moisturization is the ability of a preparation to increase the water content of the outer layer of the skin (stratum corneum). Moisturizing creams, gels and lotions are applied for the relief of the signs and symptoms of dry skin, leaving it soft, smooth and supple.
Take care of your hands
Take care of your hands
Since the outbreak of Covid-19, health experts encourage people to frequently sanitize and wash their hands to stop the spread of the virus. Aside the global impact, our hands too, have taken a serious beating. While it’s still crucial to follow these hygiene practices, doing it the right way is just as important.
A more sustainable future
A more sustainable future
While the conversation about sustainability goes on, the cosmetic industry goes way beyond just packaging and includes the whole production process from sourcing to formula creation. More and more cosmetic manufacturers are reformulating their products and replacing petrochemical derived ingredients by renewable alternatives as the growing demand for clean and natural beauty is expected to increase drastically in the coming years.
