Bio-based additives for personal care formulations
Scott Bader Co Ltd has launched Texique; a new range of bio-based additives for personal care formulations.
The new Texique products; HE10 and HE20, are innovative high performing thickeners and emulsifiers for the personal care market, manufactured from at least 60% naturally derived ingredients, none of which are animal-based. With sustainability and the environment in mind, Texique products are also completely ethylene oxide free making them the ideal choice for achieving the perfect thickness of personal care products.
Part of Scott Bader’s Functional Polymers range, Texique thickeners and emulsifiers are cold processable with good emulsification properties and good pH stability. They are supplied pre-neutralised and ready to use with no preservatives or animal derived raw materials. The bio-based ingredients in Texique products are plant-based, and they also feature renewable oil and surfactant.
The launch of Texique allows Scott Bader to enter into the personal care market for the first time whilst adhering to their 2036 vision of developing sustainable products. Research and development into the biobased ingredients continues, with the aim of further increasing the percentage of bio-based ingredients within Texique products. Mark Stanion, Scott Bader’s Group Product Manager for Functional Polymers, said: “We are delighted to launch Texique after a lot of hard work behind the scenes. Texique products are innovative and sustainable, offering formulators the perfect thickening solution for their personal care products.”
