Stephenson Personal Care has launched a patent-pending cold-process range of DUROSOFT® emulsifiers at this year’s SCS Formulate exhibition.
Their growing portfolio of personal care ingredients currently includes a range of sustainable emulsifiers – DUROSOFT® – which use naturally derived polyglycerol esters to produce ingredients for creams, lotions and foaming oil-based formulations offering specific value to producers of cold process products for sustainable raw material claims.
What makes DUROSOFT® unique is the patent-pending technology which provides a wide HLB range of 4-14 for a greater stability profile.
The DUROSOFT® range of natural and sustainable emulsifiers currently includes:
- DUROSOFT® PK-SG – an O/W natural polyglyceryl-4 ester emulsifier, derived from RSPO Certified Sustainable Segregated Palm Kernel Oil. Application areas include: water-thin lotions, creams, deodorant roll-ons and wet wipes.
- DUROSOFT® SF – a W/O natural polyglyceryl-4 ester emulsifier, derived from Sunflower Oil. Ideal for creating self-emulsifying oils such as foaming bath and shower oils, hair/beard oils, cleansing oils.
Advantages of formulating with DUROSOFT® include:
- 100% RSPO Certified Segregated Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil
- Cold process
- PEG free
- Easy to use
- Skin friendly (Dermatologically tested)
- HLB range of 4-14 for a greater stability profile
- Compatible with both oil and water phases
- No co-emulsifiers required
- No heating or cooling
- No deleterious effect on temperature sensitive ingredients
- Stable water-thin emulsions easily achieved
In comparison with traditional hot-process manufacture, DUROSOFT® can be cold processed, which creates a number of benefits for the personal care and cosmetics formulator – from achieving tighter energy standards through to reduced energy consumption – as they seek to meet key product performance criteria and improve the sustainability of their business.
