Consumer needs in personal care cleaning are shifting rapidly and formulators are reorganizing their toolboxes to accommodate them. Surfactants are vitally important tools for the formulation of personal care products, functioning as foaming agents, cleansers, thickeners, emulsifiers, and solubilizers. This presentation will give a basic overview of surfactant chemistry and present a wide variety of technology options for the latest consumer claims, including “water-free”, “sulfate-free”, “PEG/dioxane-free”, and lower irritation cleansing formulation. Surfactant functions in formulations, key functional groups, and important things to watch for will be discussed.
