Enefco Files Vitamin E-Based Cosmetic Foam Patent

A U.S. patent has been filed by Enefco USA for a new process of applying Vitamin E as a surface coating on non-latex hydrophilic polyurethane cosmetic foam. The patent pending process adds Vitamin E to the foam after the foam is manufactured and impregnates the foam in a range from surface coating to complete saturation.

"Vitamin E hydrophilic polyurethane foam is in high demand in the cosmetic industry," says Peter Klein, President/CEO at Enefco USA, Inc. "Our customers have been requesting a more cost effective and consistent Vitamin E foam."

"We are very pleased with how our process successfully coats and penetrates our cosmetic foams with Vitamin E," said John Condon, Director of Operations for Enefco.

"We can vary the surface concentration of Vitamin E applied. Once the cosmetic foam is thoroughly coated it passes through our system of rollers designed to aid the penetration of Vitamin E. The new process does not change the consistent softness of our cosmetic foams, which still maintains its supple, velveteen feel and texture. The Vitamin E is available on any foam densities we manufacture."
