GLUCOTAIN® is a more efficient thickener
GlucoTain comes in four innovative solutions that clean gently, provide improved thickening results and deliver stable foam. GlucoTain helps you formulate by making it easy to attain the right viscosity, without salt. Especially in sulfate-free platforms, where thickening formulations can be a major hurdle, GlucoTain outperforms other standard mild surfactants.
Improving the viscosity of a foaming shampoo formulation has both marketing and technical importance.
A rich lather will be perceived by consumers as highly concentrated and value for money. Thickening also has an advantage when applying the shampoo in the shower: A thin shampoo would run off the hands easily, and a thickened formulation can help keep a heterogeneous solution stable.
Clariant has demonstrated that the performance of GlucoTain, as a co-surfactant, has a better thickening response than Coco-Glucoside upon the addition of electrolyte.
