MIGLYOL® Coco 810 – Dry Lightness, Premium Softness

17. November 2022

“The richer, the more nourishing” − This is a misconception that persists. The right choice of emollients and oils is crucial for the care properties of formulations. MIGLYOL® Coco 810 creates the perfect balance − a light feeling on the skin with noticeable caring properties at the same time. Current studies carried out by an external laboratory show that our ingredient keeps what it promises.

MIGLYOL® Coco 810 – a perfect fit for light formulations with caring properties

We have revised the sensory profiles with sensory experts to enable us to describe the sensory properties of our ingredients in an even more differentiated and objective way (you will find out more about this in the next newsletter).

Above all, we now consider spreading from two perspectives. The combination of these and other values leads to the “dry lightness” rating:

1. Diffusion

2. Gliding

MIGLYOL® Coco 810: Properties tested and confirmed by an external laboratory!

Applied method:

We have commissioned a certified, external laboratory to carry out in-vivo studies to measure skin moisture with a corneometer (Courage + Khazaka). An assessment by a dermatologist and a final panel study complete the result. For this purpose, a minimalist base formulation containing 20% MIGLYOL® Coco 810 was tested over a period of two hours.

The laboratory comes to the result:

MIGLYOL® Coco 810 provides a moisturizing effect with quick hydration, a light feel and quick absorption into the skin. The assessment by a dermatologist has also shown that the skin appears softer.

Emotional result of the panel study:

Can the measured results also be felt – by experts and, even more importantly, by consumers?

Yes! The panel is enthusiastic:

  • I feel my skin is hydrated: 89% agree
  • My skin feels softer: 90% agree
  • My skin feels nourished: 90% agree

Dearest Day Face Oil

… for an energetic start to the day. Dearest Day Face Oil is water-free yet provides moisture. How? MIGLYOL® Coco 810 ensures an optimal care experience thanks to its physical properties (high diffusion, high gliding effect, fast penetration).
