AQUAXYL or XYLIANCE ???

Hi everyone,

Do you think aquaxyl or Xyliance(Cetearyl Wheat Straw Glycosides (and) Cetearyl Alcohol) provides more moisture effect? 
If we compare these two, which one is more effective for the body lotion?

I'm looking for a study comparing these two but couldn't find it ...


I wonder your ideas? thank you...

  • Aquaxyl is a humectant type and Xyliance is an emulsifier, so i'm not too sure how to compare the "moisture" effect. They can be used together but personally i feel that Aquaxyl isn't that moisturizing perhaps compared to other humectants. 
  • hi @jemolian

    Do you have a source that compares aquaxyl with other moisturizers? 
  • So far i've not come across any. Perhaps the only vague mention is this: Hydrating effects of moisturizer active compounds incorporated into hydrogels: in vivo assessment and comparison between devices https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19250164/

    What i'd recommend is to roughly reference the results from the manufacturer with other data from other ingredients. 

    TBH, i won't put too much hope into the moisturization of Aquaxyl since it seems at least to me it's more of a booster for the growth of certain components of the skin then a strong humectant.

    Aquaxyl is a joke if you want the opinion of a chemist. It's just mixing and heating glucose with xylite to get a poorly reacted mixture with a lot of side products. It does look like one of the many failed attempts at creating xylite esters/acetals. Welcome to the world of cosmetic chemistry and marketing LoL.
    Anyway, Xyliance is, as mentioned above, an emulsifier with slight film-forming properties. I perceive it as rather dry in touch with zero moisturising effect. Maybe that film keeps moisture locked in the skin? Don't have that experience to confirm or deny it properly but marketing implies it does play that trick...
  • hi @Pharma
    How can I make inferences that it will not provide effective moisture when I examine its reactions? 
  • Thank you @jemolian

    Sorry, neither do I understand what you mean nor what you're referring to.
  • sorry @pharma ; For example, when I examine the aquaxyl reaction, what can I infer about moisture?

    @pharma ;This is actually what I want to learn

  • company info about product.

    Which reaction? Are you referring to its synthesis? That has nothing to do with any final effect, it's just a fun fact ;) .
