According to new data, Cithrol 10GTIS can efficiently remove pollution particles from the skin.

Launched in 2015, Cithrol 10GTIS has already been proven to be a highly effective mild surfactant allowing for the formulation of ever more popular advanced facial oil cleansers that have ideal benefits for sensitive skin, luxurious sensory characteristics and easy rinsability.

Cleansing tests

To meet the need for pollution protection cleansing, Croda has recently carried out extensive in-vitro pollution cleansing tests on a Cithrol 10GTIS based oil cleanser against different market leading benchmark formulations. In each test, the oil cleanser containing Cithrol 10GTIS outperformed all benchmark and control formulations, effectively removing significantly more particulate matter after rinsing.

According to Croda, the news data show that Cithrol 10GTIS can be used to efficiently remove pollution particles from the skin “leaving it clean, renewed and soft to the touch”.

Respiratory problems have already been associated with particle presence in urban locations and it is now acknowledged that this same particulate matter also deposits on the skin which can lead to a general unclean feeling and a perception of both blocked pores and increased sensitisation. With a dramatic increase in awareness of concerns over the effects of pollution, consumers are seeking efficacy in skin cleansing of particulate matter whilst addressing their need for a mild and gentle treatment of sensitive skin,” explains the specialty chemicals maker.
