Calendula Depilatory Cream (Formulation #C1921) 


Croda 禾大

Calendula Depilatory Cream (Formulation #C1921) is a formulation that features products supplied by Croda Chemicals. This depilatory cream is based on Crodafos™ CES, a finely-balanced complex blend of fatty alcohol and phosphate esters, which was originally developed as an emulsifying and conditioning wax for high pH hair relaxer systems. Emulsions based on Crodafos™ CES exhibit shear thinning, promoting the combined release of oil and water from the system.

Crodafos™ CES is particularly useful for depilatory products where rapid penetration of the hydroxide ion results in shorter contact times and significantly lower skin irritation potential. The inclusion of Calendula oil, an extract of Marigold flowers, soothes dry skin whilst generating an attractive marketing claim.
