  • Glycereth-26 (Genapol G260) alternative

    Posted by I_M on February 22, 2024 at 7:52 pm

    I am working on a facial wash formula (soap-based) that has 10% glycereth-26 (GENAPOL® G 260) in it. It costs too high for the formula and I’m looking for an alternative. Are there any materials that will give similar properties to the formula at a lower cost?

    It’s usually the formula itself rather than a single ingredients what deliver the benefits. What is the benefit you want to communicate?

    I’d just focus on balancing the surfactant system and using some film former like some silicone. If you have a clear system, PEG-12 dimethicone could be a good option.
