  • Citric Acid

    Citric acid (CAS #77-92-9), C6H8O7, is one of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and  known as a weak organic acid. (don’t be deceived by the weak acid status as it is classified as such, due to being a carboxylic acid and it has limited disassociation). It is a natural preservative which is found in citrus fruits and is also used to add an acidic, or sour, taste to foods and soft drinks.

    In biochemistry, it is important as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle and therefore occurs in the metabolism of virtually all living things. Citric acid is also used as a pH balancer in body and hair product in combination with other alkali products. This is one of the key ingredients in the bath-bomb / bath fizzies where it acts upon the sodium bicarbonate to produce the 'fizzing'' (Carbon Dioxide release (CO2)) of the product. It can also be used as an environmentally benign cleaning agent.

  • Decyl Glucosides, APG

     Decyl Glucoside

    Decyl Glucoside in cosmetic skin care offers the following benefits

    • surfactant
    • good foaming power
    • compatible with all surfactant systems
    • tolerant of high electrolyte formulations ( eg. Aloe Vera)
    • compatible with a number of cationic conditioning agents
    • mild but effective cleansing
    • improves skin tolerance of the formulation
    • maintains skin balance without dryness

    Derived from sugar these surfactants are readily bio-degradable, extremely mild and perform well in hard water conditions together with a very low toxicity.

    Decyl glucoside exhibits all of the mildness traits of nonionics, with the foam of an anionic. It is this unique characteristic that enables it to be utilized as both a primary and co-surfactant in formulations. Several clinical skin irritancy tests show decyl glucoside to be non irritating, even  at high concentrations with an extended contact period of 24 hours.

    Many formulators with a natural focus  are now turning to decyl glucoside as their primary, and in some cases their only, surfactant. It is so mild that it doesn't require blending with any of the mildness additives.

    Polyglycose (decyl glucoside) is considered to be part of a new generation of surfactants. In Europe, which have one of the strictest cosmetic regulations in place under the EU Cosmetics Directive, the demand for this alkyl polyglucosides has increased enormously.

    Product Characteristics

    • Dilute with water to the desired concentration to produce shampoos, shower gels foam baths or liquid hand washes
    • Thickens to desired viscosity with a salt solution
    • Neutral odour provides excellent fragrance lift
  • PEG-150 Distearate

    PEG150-Distarate is an effective thickener for surfactant-containing products (e.g. shampoo, conditioner, shower gels),acts as solubiliser for various water-insoluble ingredients, and offers good co-emulsifying properties in creams & lotions.

    PEG esters are compatible with many amphoteric, anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants, allowing for their use as both primary and secondary emulsifiers. PEG esters are practically non-toxic and are non-irritating to eyes and skin.

    Application areas:

    1. Hair Care

    Is used as a thickening agent and foam booster in shampoos and conditioners. Also used as a thickening agent in styling products such as hair gels, and is a preferred thickener in these systems due to itís wide range of compatibility.

    2. Emulsion Systems

    here it is used as an auxiliary emulsifier and viscosity builder for both O/W and W/O emulsions. Its low usage rate, range of compatibility, and relatively low cost makes it an excellent choice for formulations

    3. Gels and Serums

    PEG150-Distearate can be hot or cold processed (24 hours hydration time), making this thickener a versatile, powerful ingredient for the formulation of gels and serums in skin care. Because it is non-irritating and practically non-toxic, its an execllent choice for facial products as well as for formulating cosmeceuticals. It ís nonionic character wont interfere with cationic actives. Because PEG150-Distearate will further thicken in the presence of salts, formulators can adjust viscosity at the end phase using either a Sodium Chloride solution or an electrolyte (such as Aloe Vera)
  • PEG7 Glyceryl Cocoate

    PEG7 Glyceryl Cocoate

    PEG7-Glyceryl Cocoate sometimes incorrectly referred to as Glyceryl Cocoate is an excellent solubiliser for perfumes and herbal extracts.

    Properties: Multifunctional agent with excellent emulsifying, emollient, re-fatting & thickening properties,perfume solubiliser also useful as surfactant & foam booster, good conditioning effect for soft & smooth skin. Due to its aqueous-alcoholic solubility, PEG7-Cocoate is an ideal component for aftershave lotions, colognes, splashes and hair tonics and waters. In these formulations it imparts emollience whilst also functioning as a perfume solubuliser

    Application: Universally applicable, especially in liquid soaps, lotions, body washes, shower gels, hair shampoos, facial cleansers, bubble baths, decorative cosmetics.


    INCI Name: Polyoxyethylene (PEG-7) glyceryl monococoate.




  • Polysorbate 80

    Polysorbate 80

    Polysorbate 80 is a liquid high HLB (15) solubiliser and emulsifier.  As it is a liquid it makes it ideally suitable for cold processed products; but which still need an effective emulsifier/solubilizer [such as room sprays, linen sprays and fragrance splashes].   In many emulsion applications it is used as the high HLB emulsifier in combination with low HLB emulsifiers (such as Sorbitan Oleate or Glyceryl Mono Stearate) to create stable oil-in-water emulsions.

    This emulsifying agent consists out of sorbitol, ethylene oxide & oleic acid (polyoxyethylene-20 sorbitan monooleate) where the oleic acid is vegetable derived. There is no Polyethylene Glycol in the product ( =PEG free)

    Purity > 95%.

    Amber, viscous liquid, odourless.

    Saponification value 45-55.

    Soluble in water & alcohols, insoluble in oils.

    HLB value 15 (gives oil-in-water emulsions).

    CAS: 9005-65-6

    INCI Name: Polysorbate-80


    • 100% Active
    • Non-Ionic
    • Oil in water solubiliser
    • Foam booster as it stabilises foam
    • Long shelf life

    Properties: Non-ionic emulsifier (enables water & oil to mix), dispersing agent, solubiliser, mild anti-static & conditioning properties, solubiliser & stabiliser of essential oils.

    Recommended usage level: 1-3%.

    Appearance: Yellow waxy paste

    Use: Can be added to formulas as is. Typical use level is 1 - 10%. (Above 5% gets foamy) For external use only. Also a great choice to improve the rinse off of anhydrous scrubs and cleansing oils. Polysorbate 80 is also able to reduce viscosity created when you've accidentally added too much thickener and reached the gel (blob) stage, or to correct an unstable emulsion which has separated...endless possibilities.

    When used alone Polysorbate 80 is an excellent solubiliser for essential oils and has good function as a wetting agent, viscosity modifier, anti static agent, stabilizer and dispersing agent. It is used to prepare a wide variety of products in the food, cosmetic, drug, textile and metalworking industries.

    Applications: Body washes, hair shampoos, hair loss treatments, lotions, creams, bath oils, Essential / Fragrance oil solubiliser. Spritzers, Cleansers, Floral Waters.

  • Sodium Coco Sulphate needles

    Sodium Cocoyl Sulphate (Coco Sulphate)

    Sodium Coco Sulphate, also known as Sodium Cocoyl sulphate, is a plant derived, high foaming anionic surfactant, emulsifier and cleansing agent. It is used for a wide variety of cosmetic products.  Since Sodium Coco Sulphate is manufactured without removal of any of the higher molecular weight fatty acids that are integral to Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil; products  made with Coco Sulfate will have a denser fine celled creamier foam and may be translucent rather than clear.

    Sodium Cocoyl sulphate is a very strong cleanser and can be irritating at high concentrations this can be reduced by combining with other milder detergents such as decyl glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine etc. Coco Sulphate is compatible with other anionic (negatively charged) and non-ionic (uncharged) ingredients but not compatible with strongly cationic (positively charged) ingredients.


    Common uses include;

    • Bodywashes,
    • Cleansers and scrubs – always use with other detergents to improve mildness

    • Shampoos,
    • Conditioning shampoos,
    • 3in1 products – always use with other detergents to improve mildness

    Creams and lotions
    • Powerful emulsifier for creams and lotions, can emulsify up to 30x its weight of oils and waxes

    Caution: the dust is very irritating to nasal membrane, so take care when weighing or mixing into liquids
