Croda Expands

December 5, 2006

Recently Croda launched OptaSense, a line of rheology modifiers and conditioners. Comprised of seven products, the OptaSense range of polymers improves the sensory appeal of personal care products. Optasense (RMA50, RMA52, RMA53, RMC70) liquid dispersion polymers allow for the creation of simple creams and lotions while Optasense G40 provides an economical solution for clear gel systems. These liquids aid in stabilizing emulsions and suspensions while offering temperature-independent thickening. They can be added in the water phase, oil phase or at the end of the batch to adjust viscosity.
Croda also offers OptaSense CP6 and CP7 to provide conditioning benefits to both hair and skin care applications. CP6 is suitable for relaxers, hair dyes and bleaches, while CP7 is a foam stabilizer offering compatibility with anionic, nonionic and amphoteric surfactants. Both conditioning polymers add shine and softness to the hair and increase spreadability on the skin.
Croda home care recently introduced Crodasoft TZ, which is designed to improve the softness of facial and toilet tissue.
It is formulated using naturally derived raw materials and is free of mineral/ paraffin oil and silicone. It is an excellent vehicle for active ingredients or botanicals. Crodasoft TZ was developed for application onto the surface of dried facial or toilet tissue during rewinding or converting.
