Brij™ L23

Croda Inc. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Brij™ L23 is a solubiliser, dispersant and wetting agent in solid form that is used in hair care, toiletries, perfumes and fragrance applications. The Brij™ Series of surfactants are polyoxyethylene vegetable-based fatty ethers derived from lauryl, cetyl, stearyl and oleyl alcohols. These materials are naturally derived, mild, and virtually odorless nonionic surfactants, and as a series, offer a diverse set of emulsifying characteristics allowing them to confer unique bodying, spreading and stabilizing properties to emulsions. Since the Brij™ surfactants manifest synergistic behavior, they can achieve even greater effects when used together. The extraordinary synergism shown by Brij™ blends is particularly evident in the case of difficult-to-formulate emulsions, such as clear gel microemulsions and alkali-based hair straighteners.

Croda considers the RSPO’s Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Arlacel 165 MBAL.
