PEG-2 caprylylamine, when used as an adjuvant surfactant formulated in a basic cleanser, can significantly increase lathering rate, as sensory evaluations, dynamic and static surface tension measurements, and the Ross-Miles method show here. Mechanisms of action for this new field of research also are discussed.

To maximize perfume delivery from structured cleansing formulations, the fragrance must be introduced before structuring the formulation into multilamellar vesicles. Structured formulations fragranced in such a way are shown here to improve perfume deposition and duration versus micellar systems, with no negative impact on perfume burst during use.

Croda partnered with The Centre for Visual Computing at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom to create the Hair Dynamics Test to measure the movement of healthy hair and compare it to the movement of damaged hair. Then, the research team at Croda set out to create a chemistry that would specifically seek to improve the movement of damaged hair by reducing inter-fiber friction.

Described here is a T-shaped cationic siloxane incorporated in a microemulsion to provide a high silicone character material with balanced solubility and high hair substantivity. Wet and dry combability and hair feel were evaluated by panelists, while combing force measurements and differential scanning calorimetry measured conditioning and heat protection, respectively. Color washfastness also was tested using a spectrophotometer.
