The two-in-one effect: added values of specific emulsifiers and surfactants

14:00 - 14:20
November 14, 2018


Specific surface-active components can create benefits for formulators if used correctly.
A rather new class of such molecules are so-called “gemini surfactants”. One of those amino acid based functional ingredients is water-soluble but at the same time improves hydrophobicity of hairs. A reduction of hair drying time by 30% or avoiding a loss of tensile strength during hair coloration, hair waving and bleaching treatments are just some of the benefits. Additional topics in this presentation will be foam stabilization, specific antimicrobial efficacy and preservation boosting.
