Ambler, PA (800) 531-0815 Fax: (215) 628-1450 Texapon 611 INCI: sodium laureth sulfate and lauryl glucoside and cocamidopropyl betaine Applications: shampoos, body washes and dishwashing liquids Use levels: 10-60% Comments: Mild, high foaming surfactant system based on the synergistic combination of sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl glucoside and cocamidopropyl betaine is ideally suited for personal washing applications. Euperlan PK 4000 INCI: glycol distearate and laureth-4 and cocamidopropyl betaine Applications: shampoos, body washes and dishwashing liquids Use levels: 4-15% Comments: Euperlan PK 4000 is the latest addition to the Euperlan line of cold processable pearls and is the the highest concetration liquid pearl in the market at 40% solids. The elimination of a hot process to add a pearl wax reduces batch cycle times and results in a uniform pearl appearance in every batch.

Parsippany, NJ (973) 644-4900 Fax: (973) 644-9222 Website: www.croda.com E-mail: email@example.com Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA INCI: behentrimonium methosulfate (and) quaternium-33 (and) cetyl alcohol Applications: conditioners for aging, weathered, permed or color-treated hair, leave-on and conventional conditioners, nourishing and treatment-type products, styling products, heat-activated products, ethnic maintenance products Use levels: 1-5% Comments: A fatty quaternized derivative of 18-methyl eicosanoic acid (18-MEA), the primary lipid of the hair surface. Product replenishes lipid surface of hair, makes hair more hydrophobic, improves wet and dry combing, repairs surface damage, protects against environmental stress and adds lubricity and shine. In combing studies on bleached hair, Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA dramatically reduced the peak load and total work of wet and dry combing. Hair fibers also showed a 15 [degrees] increase in contact angle, indicating that the hair had become more hydrophobic after treatment with Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA. Hair that has been chemically-treated or mechanically stressed is often lacking 18-MEA. This makes it unmanageable, less healthy-looking and more susceptible to environmental damage. It is expected to help restore the 18-MEA that is lost from the hair surface. Product is approved for use in Europe. Patent-pending.
