The emulsion blend offers a mild, vegetable-derived, pre-dispersed vehicle for actives, perfumes and emollients, leading to a significant reduction of mechanical and thermal energy and allowing for cold process formulations. This technology finds uses in market segments such as sun care, antiaging, skin care and pharmaceuticals.
Cleansing with extended fragrance: Henkel AG & Co. KGaA disclosed porous polyamide bead-containing hair and body cleaning agents with extended fragrance effect.16 The cleansers contained 0.05–40% w/w surfactant(s), 0.0001–5.0% w/w fragrance and 0.1–10.0% w/w porous polyamide beads. The beads were characterized by: a medium particle diameter of 1–30 µm, a specific surface according to a BET of 5 m2/g or larger, oil absorption capacity (boiled linseed oil) of 200 mL/100 g or larger, crystallinity (DSC measurement) of 40% or larger and a 1.0:1.5 ratio of medium particle diameter to average medium particle diameter. An example is shown in Formula 4.
