                               developing an “environ-mentality” to innovation and design for environmental good practice in order to create

Alternative preservation                                                       Investing in oil
goes natural
Witness the launch of Dermosoft® 688 ECO at in-cosmetics 2008, a
new multifunctional cosmetic ingredient with excellent fungicidal
activity for natural cosmetics.
   Dr. Straetmans GmbH will introduce the new product; a
petrochemically derived version of this raw material has been used
successfully in traditional cosmetic concepts for many years under the
brand name Dermosoft® 688.
   The new Dermosoft® 688 ECO is the natural counterpart sourced
from renewable plant materials and produced according to ECOCERT
standards. The chemistry and purity of the raw material is the same,
hence the excellent fungicidal properties are identical. In combination
with a bactericidal component Dermosoft® 688 ECO yields a reliable
microbiological stabilization for cosmetic products.
   Information regarding Dr. Straetmans latest product developments
such as; new preservation concepts, new PEG-free product concepts
and new starch based hair and skin conditioners will be available at in-
