- Furthermore, ANTIL® 500 Pellets is stable against hydrolysis and effective over a wide pH range.
- ANTIL® 500 Pellets is the innovative choice for the development of mild and cost-effective surfactant-based skin and hair care formulations.
The thickening agent provides a rich formulation texture with Newtonian flow behavior but without changing the foaming characteristics, which is essential for fulfilling the consumers’ sensorial expectations of personal cleansing products.
