A major trend on the hygiene/hair product market is the removal of sulfate-based anionic surfactants. Those are decried for their agressivity towards skin and hair, along with their role in fading of hair-coloring or damage of treatments such as brazilian smoothing.

Bye bye sulfates!
Looking for alternatives
A sulfate free product must show a greater respect of skin and hair.
However, consumer expectations in terms of cleansing and foaming performance must not be sacrificed to that benefit: no difference can be noticed.
Find out how SEPPIC can help you:
- Oramix L 30 provides a rich and creamy lather, while cleansing gently but efficiently. It can be used as an alternative to sulfates as a more mild surfactant. It is also known to help protecting dyed hair.
- Proteol OAT PF and Proteol APL EF, used as secondary surfactants, offer outstanding performance: high tolerance and a very abundant, unctuous and stable foam.
- Oramix NS 10, a natural (Ecocert, NATRUE and Cosmos approved) and non ionic alternative that combines mild surfactants with high foaming and cleansing powers.
- Oramix CG 110 helps boost foam while naturally solubilizing at the same time.
Making the difference:
- Aquaxyl: this Ecocert and Cosmos approved active hydrates the hair, restores the hair fibre and improves the foam quality and the tolerance of some surfactants (SEPPIC patent).
- Amonyl 675 SB: amphoteric surfactant that boosts and stabilizes the foam produced by anionic surfactants. It shows a conditioning power highly superior to betaines, hence an interest in haircare.
