Thermolat: Symrise’s new warming ingredient

Symrise’s new sensory ingredient creates a feeling like gentle warm sunshine on the skin. Thermolat was developed for use in creams, gels and balms to provide pleasant, relaxing and long-lasting effects without feelings of stinging or burning.

According to the cosmetic ingredients supplier, 71% of consumers would like to feel an intense warming sensation from their skin care applications. However, it is important that it neither causes redness nor stinging sensations.

In comparison to the warming effect achieved by existing vanillyl butyl ether (VBE) technologies, Thermolat provides a controlled warming sensation and helps to significantly reduce side effects such as redness, burning, stinging that might occur with VBE alone. With this innovation, Symrise adds a new facet to its portfolio of sensory ingredients (including the long-established cooling range Frescolat®) and thus underlines its leadership in sensorial cosmetic ingredients,” the company claims.

By addressing the skin’s thermal perception, Thermolat can also help to enhance the perceived efficacy of a personal care product.

Furthermore, the results of a test developed by Symrise to evaluate the sensation generated by the topical application of a cosmetic product show that Thermolat has a positive impact on the mood balance upon application at 1% and can easily be associated with feelings of well-being and satisfaction.

Thanks to its safe and gentle effect, Thermolat can be used in a very wide range of care and beauty products and gives them the ability to create a cozy warm feeling,” explained Caroline Baptiste, Global Product Manager at Symrise.

Thermolat is liquid and odourless and starts working within five minutes after application to the skin. The warming sensation may last up to two hours.
