Alkamuls® PEG-16 CO
A new versatile solubilizer, developed to be efficient by itself and with different types of natural oils
Bio-based conditioning polymer for transparent formulations
Alkamuls® PEG-16 CO is a novel, versatile solubilizer for natural oils. Without compromising on clarity, stability, viscosity, foam and cleansing performance, formulators can create clear cleansing formulas infused with natural oils, at an efficient level (typically >0.9%), to deliver their powerful caring benefits to hair & skin. Alkamuls® PEG-16 CO is efficient by itself, to avoid solubilizer cocktails that formulators usually have to resort to.
Versatility and efficacy in formulations are key attributes for solubilizers. Alkamuls® PEG-16 CO is equally efficient at solubilizing different vegetable oils (Avocado, Sunflower and Coconut), regardless of their chemical features: saturated or not; lauric; oleic or linoleic. Alkamuls® PEG 16 CO does outperform the market benchmark solubilizers commonly use in this new trend. On top of the clarity our new solubilizer has a positive impact on foam richness and softness (dry stage).
