Custom Polymer Development for the Cosmetics Industry

The cosmetics industry requires a wide range of polymers for everything from anti-aging ingredients to waterproof makeup. Chempilots is your one-stop source for custom polymer development from initial research to custom contract manufacturing.

Complete Product Development From Research to Manufacturing

The polymers used inside cosmetics must be of the highest quality available to be safe for the end-user. In most applications, only a custom polymer can enable the properties required for the product to work as it should. Our team develops the polymer products for any cosmetic application through complete development services, including:

Meeting All Required Safety Standards

Cosmetics are topical, which means they must be safe for the human body without toxicological risks. They must also be produced with careful thought to avoid possible allergic reactions.

Our custom polymers meet all the required safety standards, including those outlined in ISO 9001. Plus, each of our polymers is made in GMP (good manufacturing practice) conditions.

We know that the sustainability of your products is important. That’s why we create our polymers with sustainability in mind from design and manufacturing to the disposal of the materials after use.

Cyclodextrin-Containing Polymers

Cyclodextrins are naturally occurring and non-toxic compounds safe for use in the cosmetic industry. They can enhance the dissolution of substances, which is helpful in applications such as makeup remover. Cyclodextrins can also turn liquid or oil materials into powder.


Polyurethanes are known for their resistance and durability which makes them a perfect fit for applications such as sunscreen, skincare, waterproof makeup and manicure products.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is also naturally occurring and helps to bind water to collagen. Because of these properties, it’s often found in makeup and skincare products for anti-aging and skin regenerating.
