Wax Dispersion > suitable for stabilization of opacifying and pearlizing agents in rinse-off formulations

Biodegradable, opacifying wax dispersions offer alternatives to synthetic polymer based opacifiers. The stabilization of these small-sized wax dispersions in rinse-off formulations can be very challenging, specifically if the use of synthetic stabilizing polymers should be avoided.

Lamesoft® Balance Applications 

  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash
  • Bath
  • Liquid Soap
  • Facial Cleansing

Technical formulation hints and advantages

  • Cold processable
  • Easy to formulate 

    • Stir into the surfactant solution before addition of wax dispersion
    • No pre-dispersion, fast and easy distribution
    • No viscosity build up in finished formulations, rheology adjustment with sodium chloride (SLES based systems)

  • Stabilizes even low viscosity formulations
  • Density adjustment of formulations neglectable
  • Pleasant and homogenous rheology of finished formulations
    (no “pudding” structure as known from some biopolymers, e.g. xanthan gum)

Ecological profile

  • Readily biodegradable 
  • Suitable for concepts according to COSMOS and NATRUE
  • Suitable for rinse-off concepts acc. to EU Ecolabel, Nordic Ecolabel, Bra Miljöval
  • Natural origin content*1: 100 % (ISO Norm 16128-2)
  • Suitable for concepts alternative to EO- and sulfate-containing surfactants
  • Cold processable

Appearance

Consumers are increasingly looking for added value and an extraordinary experience whilst using skin and hair cleansing products. A milky, white and creamy appearance for example provides a precious visual effect supporting emotional consumer needs and performance expectations:

  • Mild and soft cleansing
  • Skin and hair care sensation
  • Moisturizing, nourishing
  • Hair conditioning and repair 

Milk, lotion, cream and yoghurt concepts are gaining interest in the skin and hair cleansing market.

Stabilization Advantages

  • Acts as a natural structurant in surfactant systems
  • Prevents aggregation of small particles and reduces sedimentation speed
  • Stabilizes even low viscosity formulations
  • Density adjustments of formulations neglectable
  • Pleasant and homogenous rheology of finished formulations
