We have the flexibility to respond quickly to changing global trends in the Personal Care market. With our strong technology base and excellent research facilities, we can develop technologies that give our customers the edge in a competitive market.
Our technologies are used in a wide range of everyday products from skin cleansers, anti-perspirants / deodorants and moisturisers through to sunscreens, shampoos and hair conditioners. By talking to our customers early in the planning cycle, we can contribute solutions that will enhance end product performance.
Innospec offer a number of products in the Iselux® range of mild, transparent, sulfate-free surfactants. These offer formulators even greater freedom to create novel and exciting shampoos, body and facial washes and bath foam. Innospec have extensive expertise in sulfate-free technologies for hair and skin cleansing applications and provide a range of products including the Pureact Isethionate and Taurate surfactants as well as our revolutionary surfactant Iselux®. We also provide detailed technical formulation support and guidance to help you easily transition to sulfate-free.
Innospec also provide high performance products for the Suncare sector. The Finsolv® range of benzoate esters are excellent solubilisers with a light, non-oily after-feel for organic sunscreen filters in sunscreen sprays and lotions as well as everyday moisturisers and make-up. Additionally formulators and consumers alike benefit from the Dispersun high-performance dispersing agents for inorganic filters and pigments which increase UV absorbance, reduce formulation viscosity and minimise whitening on application to the skin.
Unique to Innospec is NatrlquestTM E30, a biodegradable chelating agent which also acts as a preservative potentiator. NatrlquestTM can be used as a direct replacement and 'greener' alternative to EDTA in personal care formulations.
