Described herein is a hydrophobically-modified acrylic copolymer, polyacrylate-33, which is designed for low-to-medium surfactant-containing cleansers. The ingredient is shown to display high thickening efficiency and good suspension properties and shear-thinning rheology in sulfate-based and sulfate-free chassis. Further, it enables transparent formulations in the presence of salt with improved foaming and sensorial properties.

This article deliberately pushes the boundaries for cosmetics scientists, showing how the much-used phase inversion temperature (PIT) technique is a limiting special case of a more versatile, rational approach to surfactant optimization: HLD-NAC. This simple way of understanding the basic interactions within emulsion formulations can be generalized to create totally new ways of formulating stable emulsions.

The scrutiny over Cocamide DEA in cosmetic applications is not new; for the past decade, its safety has been debated. While it is widely used, many chemists still may look to remove it from existing formulations, creating the need for alternatives. To overcome this obstacle, Croda has developed two near “drop-in” replacements for Cocamide DEA.
