Evonik Introduces Eco-friendly, Polyglyceryl Emulsifier for Challenging Emulsions

At the Florida chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists' (FLSCC) Sunscreen Symposium, Evonik will debut its PEG-free, o/w emulsifier for challenging fluid emulsions such as modern sun care formulations.

Profile of Sodium Lauroamphoacetate

The present column features one of the oldest and most well-known members of the amphoteric family: sodium lauroamphoacetate (SLAA).

Naturally Derived Low Dioxane Solutions for Cleansing Products

The demand for personal care products made with natural, renewable materials shows no sign of abating. Lubrizol is responding by launching two new products: a naturally derived thickener, Glucamate™ CCO thickener, a product that builds viscosity without ethoxylation while offering broad ingredient compatibility; and a new high-solids surfactant, Sulfochem™ ES-70DXS surfactant, that pushes 1,4 dioxane levels closer to single digits and is extremely easy to handle. What’s more, the cleansing products they enable still deliver the sensory and safety properties that consumers expect.

Lubrizol Introduced High-foam, Plant-based Surfactant for Cleansing

Lubrizol Advanced Materials has created a concentrated, plant-based surfactant that provides rich creamy foam in cleansing applications.

Ingredient Profile: Decyl Glucoside

Alkyl polyglucoside (APG) surfactants continue to be a popular choice of formulators seeking to improve the sustainability of cleansing products for personal care, hard surface cleaning, dishwashing, laundry and industrial/institutional applications.

Growth in Beauty, Other Industries Sustains Market for Surfactants in Brazil, Argentina

According to a report from Frost & Sullivan, the personal and household care segments, in particular, will be key end users chiefly due to the greater purchasing power of the middle class, who are spending more on fast-moving consumer goods.

Selecting Silicone Surfactants for Personal Care Formulations

Interactions between a silicone surfactant and a fatty surfactant can alter the properties of a formulation. Here, the authors provide a case study of dimethicone copolyols in a shampoo.

Mildness Meets Greenness

Alkyl polyglucoside surfactants are obtained from renewable, plant-derived raw materials. Compatibility test results and exemplary formulations presented here show that alkyl polyglucosides enable cosmetic chemists to formulate mild body cleansing formulations that fulfill the new “green” formulation trend and enable the formulation of alkyl sulfate-free and ethoxylate-free cleansing concepts.

Clean and Green: A Review of Modern Day Surfactants and Emulsifiers

Many certified organic shampoos and body washes use soaps such as potassium cocoate as their primary cleansing agent, partially due to a lack of suitable, organically approved foaming alternatives. This article reviews the use of modern surfactants and emulsifiers developed based on a green and eco-conscious philosophy.
