As a result of their “down the drain” disposal, many personal care products end their lifecycle in aquatic ecosystems, where toxicity and biodegradability performance of ingredients is of critical importance to ensure environmental safety. Today, big brands across industry are moving to more sustainable personal care products with some committing to ambitious targets to transition to 100% biodegradable formulations within the next 10 years. But what exactly is a biodegradable product? And what test methods are used to assess biodegradability for chemical ingredients in used personal care products?

 

Innospec offers a wide range of primary surfactants for personal care products including our mild, sulfate-free, isethionate and taurate product lines. This presentation will focus on showcasing the portfolio of biodegradability data for these mild surfactants and how their impressive performance in tests translates into reduced ecological impact and qualification under recognised labelling schemes for environmental excellence.
