Innospec’s applications team has drawn on its extensive knowledge and expertise to create two new optimized performance blends that are simple to use and offer optimum performance.
Transitioning to ‘sulfate-free’ formulations is often perceived as potentially complex and expensive, often resulting in inferior performance, higher cost products. Based on our unique surfactant Iselux® (INCI name sodium lauroyl methyl isethionate), these novel surfactant blends are free from sulfates, ethylene oxide and amides. Additionally, they are readily biodegradable and derived from natural, renewable resources.
Iselux SFS is a concentrated sulfate-free surfactant blend. It requires only the addition of water for dilution and electrolytes to thicken, in order to achieve stable finished formulations. Ideal for shampoos and bodywashes, Iselux SFS can also create crystal clear finished products.
Iselux SLB is a sulfate-free surfactant concentrate which can be cold-processed. It can also be used to create structured systems where the use of high levels of oils or other non-compatible actives is desired.
Both systems are mild and provide excellent foaming with a dense, luxurious lather and elegant after-feel on skin and hair.
The performance blends will be showcased at In Cosmetics 2012, Barcelona. Come along to stand M39 and speak to us to find out how our blends can simplify and enhance your formulations.

In addition to creating desirable liquid sulfate-free products, Innospec has also created highly innovative and attractive personal care products in solid formats containing Iselux. These include solid shampoos and shave preparations. These products demonstrate how Iselux can bring its performance benefits even to solid bar preparations where its excellent lathering, mildness and after-feel create a unique user experience.
