Eastman Sustane™ SAIB, and Eastman SAIB (sucrose acetate isobutyrate) are sucrose-based adhesion promoters used to improve adhesion of products to fingernails, skin, and hair. SAIB is available in a variety of low-viscosity blends for cosmetics and personal care applications.
In transfer-resistant lipstick, SAIB can function as a plasticizer to soften the primary film former and improve its adhesion and flexibility. In traditional lipstick, it can improve wear properties by reducing creeping, bleeding, and feathering.
In epilatories, SAIB is used as a tackifier. Its low odor is often preferred over other typically used tackifiers.
In shampoo and conditioning products, SAIB deposits on the hair to provide body and manageability.
