Clarient Plantasens HE20
Has anybody used Plantasens HE20? Would you care to share your experience with it - successes, failures, any co - emulsifiers you've used, any cosmetic preservative or ingredient it doesn't mix well with in a formulation etc.
Thanks in advance
My experience with these glucoside surfactants is that you always need a co-emulsifier with them. The claims of "one-pot emulsification" are mainly false. Not a problem in formulating, mind you, just one of marketing credibility. Also, stay out of the sub-6.0 pH range. Instability may ensue. Preservation is not an issue; these are not the nonionics that interfere with formaldehyde donors.
I tried Emulgin VL-75 which is based on lauryl glucoside. We had a terrible experience with it. Yes it is a good emulsifier; both I and my testers had a bad skin reaction (came up in pus-filled pimples). Since then, and bearing in mind the increasing reports of glucoside allergy, I avoid any leave-on products that contain glucoside.
creams, gels, and serums; shampoos; and therapeutic cosmetics. In-house label and box design capability.
I'll keep searching for that evasive emulsifier. That one pot emulsification claim really appealed to me and possibility of allergies not very promising. Thanks gents.

Do nonionics also interfere with formaldehyde releasers? I thought this was with parabens and phenoxyethanol only?
