Clariant blows bubbles for soap, bath & shower products

Clariant has launched a glucamide-based natural ingredient, GlucoTain GEM, designed for use in waterless and concentrated rinse-off and conditioning products.​

The pure, concentrated glucamide is sulphate-free and based on non-food competing sunflower oil and sugar syrup sourced in Europe to ensure close proximity to the production site.

GlucoTain GEM is a salt-free, nonionic material designed to allow formulators to impart “incredible foam to skin and hair products that are easy to dilute, achieving a creamy whipped-like consistency which is easy to spread, and also quick and easy to rinse off”.

“GlucoTain GEM is literally pushing the bubble further on cleansing, opening up new possibilities for the industry to overcome usual difficulties in developing mild but concentrated or solid rinse-off formulations and still achieve conditioning, delightful sensory for skin and hair,” said Hermann Bach, global head of strategic marketing and innovation at Clariant.

“This glucamide ticks important boxes on performance and environmental impact to ultimately support formulators and consumers in making responsible choices,” he added.

To demonstrate its potential, Clariant follows the trend of solid water-less formulation systems with the development of an environmental label-compliant conditioner bar with >99.5% RCI. 

The concept “GEM conditioner – as precious as your hair” is shown to have restorative and conditioning effects on damaged hair, it said.
