      Long Chain Alkenyl Succinic Acids for Personal Care, Hot Melt Adhesives,    

         Candles, Ceramics and Castings, Leather, and Polish Applications

A new line of long chain alkenyl succinic acid products is disclosed herein.  These waxes are produced via reactions to yield products with long hydrocarbon chains coupled to succinic acid.  The products are available ranging from liquids to hard solids.  The amount of succinic acid functionality can be varied from none up to about 150 mg KOH / gram.

The products disclosed herein have the following application benefits:

·                As additives for Skin Care products.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to modify the conditioning performance of skin care formulations.  The products can also be used to control the rheology of the formulation to deliver improved properties.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the skin care formulation.

·                As additives for Sun Care products.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to modify the performance of sun care formulations.  The products can be used to control the rheology of the formulation to deliver improved SPF properties, and can also improve water resistance.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the skin care formulation.

·                As additives for Color Cosmetics.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can enhance stability of the formulation and effectively disperse pigments.  The new products can also contribute to effective films with good aesthetics and water resistance after application of the formulations.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 25% by weight in the formulation.

·                As a Component of Hot Melt Adhesives to improve the compatibility with more polar resins, such as high VA content EVA or EAA, and improve adhesive strength and cold flexibility of the applied adhesive.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can also control the set times of the adhesive through the narrow melt distribution.  The new product can be used at levels up to 40% by weight in the final formulation.

·                As additives to improve the appearance of candles.  The additives can be used in overdip applications to provide surface hardness, gloss, and enhanced color.  The new alkenyl succinic acid can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the candle.

·                As additives to improve processing of candles.  The new alkenyl succinic acid can be added to candle formulations to increase hardness and temperature stability.  The products can also help modify the crystal str...
