The biobased, gentler alternative for nail polish removers

With consumers demanding greater transparency regarding what’s in the products they purchase, ingredient choice is extremely important for formulators. For this reason, Corbion offers PURASOLV® EL: a greener and safer solvent to replace acetone or ethyl acetate in nail polish removers.

As a derivative of lactic acid produced via fermentation, PURASOLV® EL enables formulators to create nail polish remover formulations that are both effective in use and environmentally friendly.
