Over the years, it has been a challenge for the personal care and cosmetic industry to develop and maintain an effective cleaning program with the tendency for manufacturers to reformulate 30% of the portfolio each year. Continuous introductions of new, and difficult to clean raw materials within formulations can increase the challenge. Evaluating these challenges and determining the best cleaning program is essential for the productivity and quality within personal care and cosmetic facilities.During this session, we will cover considerations for common, yet difficult soils, as well as investigate and provide technical insights on new formulations and raw materials that we have seen coming to market and increasing in popularity. As part of these insights, we will share stories from our research and development laboratory and provide practical steps manufacturers can take during the early stages of product development to ensure the cleanability of formulations. Additionally, we will provide advice regarding the types of cleaning chemistry offerings, especially targeting a portfolio of specialized cleaners for the personal care industry, that manufacturers can utilize in their regimens to save time, labor and resources.
Increased consumption of cleaning products is the new normal during and after COVID-19, as cleaning and disinfecting routines occur with greater frequency in household and industrial settings. These behavior changes have caused consumers to scrutinize the safety and sustainability of the products they use.This webinar will discuss methods and ingredients to ensure your formulation meets current and evolving consumer needs, such as sustainability, ready biodegradability, robust preservation, and a desirable health and safety profile. Guidance will be provided to optimize the full formulation, leveraging synergies between green ingredients to achieve enhanced performance and robustness. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate effective use of anionic surfactants, green chelating agents, multifunctionals, and Kalaguard® SB preservative.
