Conditioning, Cleansing Solutions from Rhodia

Rhodia has expanded its product portfolio with the addition of two raw materials to condition and cleanse...

Polycare Boost (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) dimethicone (and) polyquaternium-74 (and) laureth-7 (and) sodium benzoate (and) phenoxyethanol) is a 2-in-1 conditioner. According to the company, the product ensures optimum conditioning efficacy and is designed for use in high performance shampoos and hair treatments. The product combines a proprietary deposition polymer and a silicone oil into a single liquid system that offers simplicity and flexibility in processing. The company reports the product: gives perceivable consumer benefits; is highly substantive to hair; boosts hair shine; makes hair manageable; provides good rinsability; and is simple to process, among other benefits.

Miracare SLB is a line of structured surfactant, liquid systems that reportedly deliver care and performance for cleansing. The surfactant blends form liquid crystals when formulated properly. The liquid crystals have a unique rheology profile, enabling the suspension of insoluble oil and particles, providing for the formulation of products with creamy lotion-like textures. This cleansing solution is said to provide: multiple sensory and performance benefits; long-lasting moisturizing effects; unique texture from cream to lotion; dense and rich foam in the presence of conditioning oils; and differentiated smooth after-feel.
