Highlights of Hallstar news, product development, events and other relevant industry information.
Hallstar recently launched two innovative mineral UV filter systems – HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX and HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX Plus – that use natural titanium dioxide to refract and reflect light away from the skin. But unlike other mineral sun care products, Hallstar uses a surface-treated, patented C3+ coating that eliminates common issues like gritty particulates and whiteness. In fact, Hallstar has conducted clinical studies that prove our dispersions reduce whiteness more than other leading mineral UV filters currently on the market. Both products are delivered in a readily flowing liquid dispersion that promotes pourability, stability and spray applications.
HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX Plus includes SolaStay® S1, our market-leading photoprotection product, to photostabilize methoxydibenzoylmethane (Avobenzone) when present. HallBrite® EZ-FLO TDX Plus is optimal for use with high SPF formulations and in regions requiring SPF/PFA less than or equal to three.
Popular Moroccan argan tree seed oil brings shine and moisture to hair care — it’s known as the “healing tree” — and enables a natural claim and appealing product ingredient story. Hallstar has taken the ingredient a step further with its new, multi-functional Biochemica® Argan Shine. This product blends the healing properties of Moroccan argan tree seed oil with other precious oils to deliver brilliant shine to all hair types. Together, these oils nourish and condition hair for luminous shine without greasiness and enable formulators to develop products without the use of silicones. The result is a luxurious, carefully crafted ingredient that offers higher performance and more value. Biochemica® Argan Shine is now available for a wide variety of hair product applications, including shampoos and hair therapies.
At the In-Cosmetics 2016 show in Paris, Dennis Zlotnik, market development manager for beauty and personal care at Hallstar, delivered a well-attended presentation on Hallstar’s new HallBrite® EZ-FLO Dispersions, explaining the novel approach to performance and aesthetics that’s redefining how natural sunscreens look, feel and protect. Hallstar’s large, interactive booth provided additional opportunities to talk with experts about Hallstar functional naturals, custom formulation and other capabilities.
At this year’s New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers’ Day event in Edison, NJ, Hallstar experts had the privilege to meet and talk with beauty and personal care companies about the latest products, trends and innovations.

With consumers craving more natural products, Suppliers’ Day presented an ideal opportunity to share Hallstar’s functional natural products and other beauty and personal care solutions with brands looking for innovative, on-trend solutions.
