As a testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and to the needs of its customers and consumers, Symrise has developed a revolutionary new green multifunctional. After investing in years of research, Symrise is proud to present Hydrolite® 7 green, the only 7-carbon 1,2-alkanediol on the cosmetics market.
Key features of Hydrolite® 7 green:

  • Clear, colorless, nearly odorless liquid
  • 100% bio-based carbon

In recent years, the green trend has been gaining momentum as consumer interest in renewable raw materials innovations and finished products formulations has been rising sharply. Since the introduction of Hydrolite® 5 by Symrise 30 years ago, 1,2-alkanediols have been increasingly used in the Personal Care industry as multifunctional ingredients. Now, Hydrolite® 7 green brings an eagerly anticipated response to consumers’ and formulators’ wishes. This is the product the cosmetics industry has been waiting for: a nature-derived, biodegradable, liquid ingredient with multiple benefits packed into a single molecule. Hydrolite® 7 green offers exceptional qualities and multiple benefits for both skin and formulations that go far beyond enhancing product protection.

Key substantiated benefits: 
  • Antioxidant enhancer
  • Sebum modulator
  • Malodor reducer
  • Solubilizer of organic UV filters
  • Emulsion stabilizer
  • Product protection enhancer


Hydrolite® 7 green offers 3 levels of protection: It helps to protect the environment with its strong sustainability profile; it clears the skin and protects it from the damaging effects of modern life, and it helps to protect formulations against oxidation and to create and maintain clarity by stabilization and by reducing formulation complexity. Hydrolite® 7 green also enhances product protection.
