Aristoflex® TAC

Clariant Featured Product
Aristoflex® TAC is an innovative suspending agent for pearls, bubbles and particles within liquid soaps, shampoos and anti-dandruff shampoos, facial cleansers and shower gels. Aristoflex® TAC sets new standards for formulators looking to add an "eyecatcher" to transparent or slightly opaque formulations. Its very high yield force even at low concentrations ensures particles are held in place even when the liquid is cold or shaken, without affecting the clarity of the product. Aristoflex® TAC’s compatibility with biopolymers allows it to smooth and improve the unattractive, rough appearance normally seen in biopolymer-based formulations. Aristoflex® TAC is compatible with anionic and amphoteric surfactants and viscosifies at a low pH. This stability at low pH can save money for formulators by allowing the integration of organic acids to preserve formulations.

AkzoNobel Featured Product
In most personal care emulsions, STRUCTURE® XL starch can aid in emulsion stabilization, aesthetics enhancement and viscosity build. An emulsion containing STRUCTURE® XL starch will have outstanding stability over a broad temperature range (-30°C up to 50°C). It also brings body to the formulation and a conditioning after feel. STRUCTURE® XL starch is readily cold water dispersible so that no pre-mixes are needed. STRUCTURE® XL starch can be added to the oil phase or at the end of a production, so a “one pot process” is possible, leading to major savings in production costs. Emulsions made with STRUCTURE® XL starch do not require homogenization. Because of its nonionic character and broad compatibility, STRUCTURE® XL starch provides the formulator with the flexibility to formulate over a wide pH range with high amounts of mono- and divalent salts (up to 20%) and a large variety of raw materials STRUCTURE® XL starch has also shown foam enhancing properties in cleansing systems at levels
