Raw Materials

Our sucrose esters are produced with sucrose, from beet and cane source, and fatty acids from palm oil. Since July 2014 our sucrose ester supplier DKS (and Sisterna as daughter company) are RSPO member (nr. 4-0491-14-000-00). As of October 2015 the manufacturing site are approved as RSPO Mass Balance and Segregation supply chain.

The production with certified and traceable palm oil according to the Mass Balance system has started in January 2017. This means that the supply of RSPO certified Sisterna sucrose esters from our warehouse in the Netherlands can start from March 2017 at the earliest. 

Please find herewith the link to the certificate CU-RSPO SCC-837068.

Step into the world of make-up with Sisterna sucrose esters

1)      Velvet natural lipstick
The lipstick has a nice creamy skinfeel, a good colour pay off and is moisturizing for the lips.

2)      Natural cream-to-powder blush
The soft texture glides on smoothly and blends to a light powdery effect leaving a dewy finish.

Both formulations feature Sisterna A10E-C, used as a lipidic phase modifier to improve the rheological properties by increasing the strength of a lipstick and at the same time it influences the melting behaviour in a positive way. Furthermore Sisterna A10E-C helps preventing blooming and sweating of sticks. Also it improves the sensorial properties by reducing the greasy and sticky sensation of oils.  Spreadability remains unchanged, while skin adsorption is increased. The final effect perceived is a silky and dry feel.

3)      Natural Fluid foundation (O/W)
The natural fluid foundation with Sisterna sucrose ester emulsifiers  has a soft and creamy texture that conceals imperfections while leaving a non-cakey, flawless finish. 

Besides excellent O/W emulsification, Sisterna sucrose esters provide a superb and light skinfeel.



In the past 25 years Sisterna has grown from a small marketing- and sales office to an internationally recognized supplier of sucrose esters.

We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our associates and our culture of customer service. We have dedicated ourselves to 25 years of product innovation and manufacturing efficiencies to provide our customer with the highest quality products and service.

We're excited for the next 25 years!
