  • Does PEG-8 take effect for the Micro Dense Foam in facial Cleanser

    Dear all,

    just wandering does PEG-8 take effect for the Micro Dense Foam in facial Cleanser or not?

    because in japan facial cleanser like example shiseido senka whip foam, they use PEG-8 always in their cleanser product.

    what does PEG-8 do in the cleanser? and does anyone know how to work with PEG-8 ?

    so confused about this.

    Thanks

    Yes it increases foam viscosity, thus stabilizing.
    Also Japanese facial cleansers are mostly using soap as the cleansing agent, and by its nature, soap gives smaller & denser foam than other surfactants.
