Pilot Chemical Releases New Sulfate-Free Blend

January 1, 2014

Pilot Chemical debuted its new sulfate-free blend, CalBlend SF.  The new Pilot product is the latest addition to the company’s line of eco-friendly, DEA-free blends supporting personal care applications, which also includes CalBlend DF and CalBlend Mild.  

According to the company, CalBlend SF offers excellent viscosity building performance through the economical application of salt additives, great foaming characteristics, and is dioxane- and solvent-free. Formulated to readily enhance shampoo, body wash and liquid hand soap, this biodegradable blend of high performance surfactants produces a mild formulation with a deep cleansing lather and soft after feel. CalBlend SF delivers flexibility to formulators, with suggested use levels ranging between 20-50%, while providing the lower inventory and rework reductions normally associated with blends. This complete surfactant blend is free of Proposition 65 listed substances, has cold mix capability, and is compatible with conditioning and hydrating agents.  The introduction of CalBlend SF to Pilot Chemical’s line of new blends is an extension of the company’s commitment to creating sustainable chemistries.  

The full CalBlend product line can be viewed at www.pilotchemical.com/productgroups/index/3; including the new Sulfate-Free blend CalBlend SF, DEA-Free CalBlend DF and mild blend CalBlend Mild.
