Biocogent utilizes proprietary high energy sonic jet process technology in the manufacture of its High Energy Dynamic Ingredients (HEDI®). This technology enables the combination of typically incompatible materials such as hydrophilic and hydrophobic molecules. Our expertise in the manufacture of HEDI® products has resulted in unique ingredients that provide benefits and value previously impossible to achieve. Stable and infinitely cold-dilutable aqueous products containing very high levels of hydrophobic (oils, butters, non-polar molecules, silicones, etc.) are possible. And, because water remains free and unbound, these products are pumpable, often sprayable, spreadable and easy to handle.
The homogeneity of specific particle size and distribution achieved through HEDI® technology provides a level of formula aesthetics, performance, and functionality not possible by simply adding individual components in situ. HEDI® products are easy to handle, require only simple mixing without heat, and provides significant savings in time during product development and in manufacturing. HEDI® products are excellent choices for a wide range of applications: moisturizing lotions and creams, skin toners, serums, sunscreens, barrier repair products (after shave, post-laser, after-sun), sensitive skin formulas, baby care products, wet wipes, hair conditioners, and many others.
