High Oil Cleansing
With this concept, we provide a solution for rinse-off formulations that contain high levels of oil, whilst at the same time deliver superior foaming properties. Now consumers can clean and care their skin in one step, thanks to the development of high oil body washes and shampoos. Consumers daily beauty routines have been simplified by this perfect 2in1 solution.
High-Oil Cleansers help to cleanse the skin and take care of it at the same time
Benefits: Simplifies everyday beauty routines
The challenge: To provide superior foam cleansing for high oil level containing formulations
Evonik’s solution: Structured systems instead of micellar systems
Consumers today are looking for simple and timesaving cosmetic solutions that not only cleanse their skin but also take care of it. Cleansing formulations that contain high oil levels are therefore in high demand, as they appear to offer the perfect 2in1 solution. The new, dual approach is suitable for all types of cleansing and care applications. For skin care products such as creamy body washes, high oil level cleansing formulations allow for additional claims (e.g. a rich skin feel or moisturizing), new sensational textures (e.g. body wash creams or mousses), as well as the easy addition of peeling additives.
The challenges for rinse off formulations containing high oil level lies within their usually poor foaming properties, stability, texture and viscosity. Facing these challenges, Evonik has developed a highly innovative technology that allows formulations to be created that produce a creamy texture for rich sensorial effects, but still offer good foaming and cleansing properties. The award-winning technology is based on hydrophobic TEGO® Sulfosuccinate DO 75 (Diethylhexyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate) or ANTIL® Soft SC MB (Sorbitan Sesquicaprylate). In addition, PEG- and Sulfate-free systems are also possible, for instance the recently launched RHEANCE® One, multifunctional solution for gentle cleansing, can replace Sodium Laureth Sulfate in such systems.
With this high oil cleansing concept, Evonik provides an inspiring selection of formulations for different types of high oil rinse-off formulations including body washes, facial cleanser, make-up removal cream and different hair care solutions, that have all been tested and proven to outperform common market products. This is what we call “The Soul & Science of Beauty”.
ANTIL® 500 Pellets
As an innovative hydrophilic polymer, ANTIL® 500 Pellets enables a significant reduction of the active surfactant level in standard cleansing formulations. In addition, the extraordinary efficiency and high flexibility of ANTIL® 500 Pellets facilitate the thickening of challenging surfactant systems, such as sulfate-free formulas, effectively supporting the trend for milder cleansing in personal care. The 100% active, preservative-free solid is clearly soluble in water and processable at room temperature. Furthermore, ANTIL® 500 Pellets is stable against hydrolysis and effective over a wide pH range. The thickening agent provides a rich formulation texture with Newtonian flow behavior but without changing the foaming characteristics, which is essential for fulfilling the consumers’ sensorial expectations of personal cleansing products.
