prevent or lessen bubbles

I'm told the salt of white licorice extract (Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate) and or licorice extract is a saponin.

We are using 1% of Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate in our spray but it's creating too many bubbles 9suds) in the bottle.

Is there a natural or less chemically way of reducing bubble formation?

There is Alpha-Arbutin, Niacinamide, N-Acetyl Glucosamine,  Saké Ferment.

Any suggestions would be great.

thanks,
Todd

    Your report does not agree with my experience. Pure DPG (a white powder) does not cause any foaming in my experience. Lower grades of extract (eg the brown 12% powder I also stock) does indeed contain saponins and has different effects to the purified acid or salt.

  • ok, thought our grade was ≥98%. yep, it's the DPG. we added  0.5% in water, shook it and waala SUDS.

    Bad grade?

    Very strange. I would have to make some and retest (I make it by reacting the pure acid with KOH)

  • Thanks. The supplier double checked and made a 0.5% solution in water and he got lots of foam.

    I'll try this ASAP but am very busy at the moment.
