It is very hard to narrow down skin care. You could be talking about a light cream-gel to use as a moisturizer around the eyes, or a thick W/O cream to use as a moisturizer for the heels. It could be a hydroalcoholic toner for the face, or an exfoliating cleanser for the body. So many options, so little time! So many product forms, so many potential ingredient offerings!
Croda has long been the leader in the development of innovative quat and emollient technology. These strengths are coupled with a thorough knowledge of emulsifiers and thickeners for a one stop approach to skin care raw materials. This position allows us to offer a wide variety of formulation solutions to our customers.
Our Incroquat Behenyl TMS-50 is a cationic quat that creates emulsions with a soft, powdery feel on the skin. The Crodamols and Cromollients are a diverse range of esters that exhibit different types of emolliency, formulation aesthetics and application properties. Our Brij line of nonionic emulsifiers, and Crothix and Promidium rheology modifiers are real workhorses in many types of skin care formulations.
