Formulating alternative surfactant systems

Formulation Lab 1

Sulfate containing surfactants have long been used as primary surfactants for the personal care industry. Although they still are the first choice for the formulator when it comes to developing efficient and convenient cleansing products for body and hair, formulations with alternative surfactant systems are on the rise. 

BASF has developed shampoo formulations based on mild surfactants and a natural conditioning polymer combined with a conditioning booster, a synergistic thickener and an APG® based pearlescent concentrate. In the formulation lab, a shampoo with excellent foaming properties, outstanding mildness and distinct benefits in wet and dry conditioning performance will be prepared.
