The objective of this paper is to expand the study of interactions between anionic and cationic surfactants to specific Gemini surfactants and to investigate whether their interactions depend upon the linkage group between them.

Pseudo-nonionic surfactant complexes formed between anionic and cationic surfactants improved physical and sensorial attributes of soap formulations. Two complexes are described; one more stable and the other having the lowest irritation potential.

In this article, the significance of parameters such as correlation length (blob size), micelle structure, comicellization, polymer adsorption conformation and coacervate structure are introduced with relevance to the conceptual appreciation of polymer-surfactant interactions and its bearing on recent advances in conditioning shampoos.

The authors develop data on 10 attributes of 16 naturally derived PEGs and suggest a presentation technique by which the formulator may view two measured attributes simultaneously.

After a short introduction illustrating the basic principles for steric stabilization by polymeric surfactants, the authors describe a novel polymeric surfactant that consists of hydrophobically modified inulin and demonstrate that it is an effective stabilizer for O/W emulsions, suspensions, nano-emulsions and multiple emulsions.

There is probably no personal care category that is more competitive than shampoos. With this in mind, formulators of shampoos are asked by marketing to develop products to both appeal to consumers and perform (whatever “perform” means).
