Innospec has won the annual Laura Marshall Memorial Award for Innovation at the SCS Formulate show in Coventry, UK for Paper Pocket Cleanser.
Part of Innospec’s Blue Ocean formulation collection for 2022, Paper Pocket Cleanser consists of a single sheet of paper packaged in a tiny cardboard box.
The paper is placed in the hand and when water is added it dissolves upon rubbing, generating a creamy foam to wash the hands or face before rinsing
The feather-light cleansing sheets are made from four ingredients.
“Three of which are Innospec’s sulfate-free surfactants - Pureact GLT, Pureact SCG and Pureact Gluco C - which makes it a really simple formulation to create and even easier to use,” the company said.
The award was presented at the UK SCS (Society Of Cosmetic Scientists) annual dinner during the SCS Formulate show in Coventry.
Voting takes the form of a token placed in a chosen finalist’s display in the award zone in the exhibition hall.
The other finalists were Sigmund Lindner, Adina, IMCD, Chemox Pound/Carst & Walker and Inolex.
