Dfe-US CleanGredients list
1- Hydrotropic effect
SIMULSOLTM SL 8 exhibits hydrotropic properties that are highly dependant on concentration in the given application SIMULSOLTM SL 8 with intermediate alkyl chain length (octyl & decyl) are highly effective in elevating the cloud point of a solution with non ionic surfactant. This is also true for system containing non-ionic surfactants as well as electrolytes, where a smaller amount of SIMULSOL SL 8 is needed to clarify a cloudy solution compared to short or long-chain
2- Solubilizing effect
Unlike other non-ionic surfactants, it does not reduce the foam but, conversely, promotes its formation. SIMULSOLTM SL 8 is a highly effective solubilizing agent for essential oils and fragrances.
In addition, SIMULSOLTM SL 8 can also solubilize cationic surfactants (such as quaternium-82). SIMULSOLTM SL 8 can therefore be used in the formulation of many different products containing cationic agents.
3- Foaming power
SIMULSOLTM SL 8 can be used in mild cleaning products. It is moderately wetting and its cleansing action is comparable to that of NaLES, making it a mild cleansing agent.
SIMULSOLTM SL 8 produces a satisfactory foam volume, even in the presence of soil.The foam developed by SIMULSOLTM SL 8 is fine and stable.
4- Wetting power
SIMULSOLTM SL 8 is not very wetting, which gives it its dermo-compatible character.
5- Foaming enhancer
Formulas that contain SIMULSOLTM SL 8 as a solubilizing agent develop higher foam volumes. In fact SIMULSOLTM SL 8 boosts volume.
6- Electrolytes resistance
SIMULSOLTM SL 8 is widely compatible in concentrated electrolyte solution, strong alkaline medium and acid ones (pH>3).
