Depilatory Lotion (Formulation #C1681) 


Croda 禾大

Depilatory Lotion (Formulation #C1681) is a formulation that features products supplied by Croda. Depilatories are based principally on the calcium, potassium or sodium salts of thioglycollic acid. By its ability to cleave the disulphide linkages between the peptide chains of keratin, the major hair protein, thioglycollic acid causes the hair fibre to readily disintegrate. Depilatories containing thioglycollic acid are commonly used in alkaline media, approx pH 12. Excess alkalinity is provided by the addition of potassium, calcium or sodium hydroxide.
