Purac has added a new section to its portal that includes information on detergent industry applications. The site also offers detergent formulations and product specifications on lactic acid and lactates.
According to Purac executives, lactic acid and lactates, natural constituents of the human skin, can have positive effects on the skin. The ingredients are widely used in cosmetics for their moisturizing properties. The natural leap for Purac was to incorporate these ingredients into hand soaps, liquid soaps and dishwashing detergents, company executives said.
Lactic acid and lactates are also applicable to formulations such as toilet cleaners, all-purpose and bathroom cleaners, wet wipes and manual dishwashing products.
