Amino acid surfactant

With the improvement of living standards, consumers pay more attention to the mildness in cleaning products, Amino acid surfactants have gradually become the main ingredients in personal care products because of their high safety, almost non-toxic, harmless, and mildness to skin and hair.

Reachin launches a series of amino acid surfactants such as Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Taurine Cocoyl Methyl Taurate, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, etc. They are extremely mild, with excellent and stable foam, reducing the irritation of the formula, giving skin and hair a moisturizing feeling.

Remild CTT30 (INCI name: Sodium Taurine Cocoyl Methyl Taurate) is a cost-effective amino acid surfactant with a double taurine structure. It is transparent liquid form, very convenient to use, with super mild and low irritation to skin and hair, excellent hard water resistance, and good foaming performance under hard water conditions.

Study information shows that taurine can help hair growth. Remild CTT30 with double taurine, which can activate hair follicle cells. With continuous using shampoo containing double taurine, the content of taurine in hair increased, so as to help hair growth.

High-effective thickener in Amino Acid Surfactant System

To solve the problem of difficult thickening in the amino acid surfactant system, Reachin launches Resense PGL (INCI name: Propylene Glycol Laurate), which is a non-ionic surfactant with emulsifying, lubricating, moisturizing and thickening properties. It has an effective thickening effect in amino acid surfactant systems with low usage and can be used in a transparent system.

The experimental data shows that the thickening effect of 1.0% Resense PGL combined with 0.3% DOE120 is similar to 0.6% DOE120 in the same formula.

Resense PGL can help to improve the jelly phenomenon caused by the high dosage of DOE120 in low temperatures.

Besides, Resense PGL can replace CMMEA, avoid free amines caused, and had a better thickening effect at the same dosage.
