  • Glycerine

    Glycerine  (Glycerol)  Vegetable derived BP/USP

     Glycerol is used in medical and pharmaceutical and personal care preparations mainly as a means of improving smoothness providing lubrication and as a humectant. It is found in   a wide variety of products from toothpaste, skin care products, shaving cream, hair care products and soaps.   When used for human consumption glycerol is classified by the U.S. FDA among the sugar alcohols as a caloric macronutrient.

    Glycerol is also a component of glycerin soap where ssential oils are added for fragrance. This kind of soap is often used by people with sensitive, easily-irritated skin because it prevents skin dryness with its moisturising properties. It aids by drawing moisture up through skin layers and slows or prevents excessive drying and evaporation.   In foods and beverages glycerol serves as a humectant solvent and sweetener and may help preserve foods.

  • Polyquat 7

    Polyquaternium-7

    Polyquat7 or Polyquaternium-7 is a quaternary ammonium compound (generally referred to as a "Quat").  Polyquaternium-7 is a clear, aqueous copolymer developed for improved compatibility and clarity in anionic surfactant systems. This highly substantive copolymer is recommended to improve wet and dry properties of hair care products and to enhance feel in skin care products.

    In the cosmetics and personal care area, it is used in a wide variety of products including shampoos, hair conditioners and other hair products, bath soaps and cleansing products, where it prevents or inhibits the build-up of static electricity and imparts to the hair a smooth feel and adds gloss. Polyquat-7 improves wet combability; nor does it deposit a film, instead it links with the hair keratin. Polyquaternium-7 also helps hair hold its style by inhibiting the hair's ability to absorb moisture.



     

  • Sorbitol (70%)

     Sorbitol 70%

    Sorbitol is  often used instead of glycerine as it similarly retains moisture and provides that velvety feel to the skin. Sorbitol besides being more resistant to bacteriological degradation is also less vulnerable to mould growth than many other humectants in cosmetic formulations.

    Chemically sorbitol is a water soluble polyhydric alcohol with a sweet taste. It offers high formulating stability in addition to its humectant properties. It is used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products such as toothpaste, foods such as sweets and chewing gum.

     Sorbitol is typically produced by the hydrogenation of dextrose. The dextrose is derived from starch via an enzymatic process. The resultant clear dextrose solution is then reacted with hydrogen gas in the presence of catalyst in the reactor. The resultant sorbitol is subsequently subjected to a number of purification processes such as carbon treatment ion exchange etc. The final concentration of Sorbitol (70%) is achieved in evaporators.

    Note: this product has a density of 1.29 g/mL thus 1kg is less than a litre!
