Our scientific director, Dr Guido Bregaglio, developed his ‘literacy’ alongside his two mentors: his father dr. Ugo Bregaglio and prof. Gianni Proserpio, the pioneers of italian beauty industry.
He gained international experience realizing several successful products still used by formulators worldwide.
He is one of the main experts in esterification and etherification processes of polyglycerol which became his focus with the advent of green chemistry.
Dr Bregaglio preceded the concept of clean beauty. He reinvented some reactions that do not generate toxic and dangerous substances in order to lead them with greater safety for man and the ecosystem while improving performances and reducing the gap between synthetic and natural in terms of “skin feel”.
One of Dr Bregaglio most recent achievements is represented by STABILGREEN® K, a new natural and COSMOS approved “hydrophilic lipid” capable of stabilizing the most difficult emulsions or even helping formulators to recoup OW emulsions that are not perfectly stable.
“In SOCRI I’ve found friends who work together to build new substances for a more sustainable cosmetics, with the belief that a chemistry attentive to environmental values means looking to the future and working to improve the quality of life.”
