On the occasion of the in-cosmetics (Barcelona) and FCE Cosmetique (Sao Paulo) tradeshows, Clariant has presented the possibilities offered by its four-in-one sensory, mild, performing and sustainable benefits of its sugar-based and sulfate-free GlucoTain surfactants.
The new range gives formulators the chance to balance consumer needs for mildness and new sensory dimensions with real cleansing foaming power. They can now choose what they need from a variety of four products to remove the compromises usually faced between developing a harsh product that cleans, or one that is mild but not as good at performing on the cleaning front.
According to Clariant, GlucoTain gives formulators a solution for overcoming the traditional trade-offs in developing innovative products and platforms based on sulfate-free and EO-free formulations. Its combination of the four characteristics opens up choice for formulators looking, for example, to design sulphate free products while keeping costs under control, without hurting performance. GlucoTain glucose and natural oil-based surfactants are kind to skin and hair proteins and lipid layer. At the same time they offer good thickening and high compatibility with a wide range of ingredients, fragrances, oils and other actives. All GlucoTain surfactants are readily biodegradable and free of Aquatox labeling.
“With two square meters of skin to take care of everyday, it is not surprising that today’s consumers want to use natural and mild products to cleanse and nourish. Our sensory expert panel has explored in-depth the concept of how clean should feel, so that with our range our customers have a huge variety of choice when it comes to surfactants that are natural, have cleaning power and that really please the senses. Our unique GlucoTain is an exciting revolution for the industry,” comments Nicolas Lasbistes, Global Technical Marketing Manager Personal Care at Clariant.
