UL Prospector


SÖFW/SOFW makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Cosmetic preservation is increasingly under pressure. Industry sensitivity towards the toxicology of biocides has been raised. Europe and the U.S. have started re-evaluating the safety of cosmetic preservatives. As more cosmetic manufacturers want to go »global«, the public debate around the world regarding traditional cosmetic preservatives limits the options available to cosmetic manufacturers. Cosmetic formulators are realising the need for alternative approaches to product protection.


SÖFW/SOFW is a professional journal that discusses the development of perfume, detergents, and soap used in the Personal Care and Cosmetics industry. This journal contains many chemical-technical articles that are widely used by cosmetic formulators, chemists, and laboratory staffs. Topics that are discussed in this journal include formulations, new raw materials, legislation, methods of testing, and more.
