GlucoTain® and Plantasens® Abyssinian Oil
GlucoTain is an innovative range of sugar-based surfactants offering sensory benefits through individual foam structures – from fluffy to rich – and light to caring conditioning levels. It creates new possibilities for formulators to go the next step in developing innovative products and platforms based on sulfate-free, CAPB-free and betaine-free formulations for a wide range of applications. In addition it addresses the consumer’s desire for more natural and mild products with no compromise on cleansing properties.
GlucoTain is available in 4 products, all offering excellent compatibility with other ingredients: Clear, Clean, Flex and Care.
Filled with benefits only the African earth and sun make possible, Plantasens Abyssinian Oil lends brilliance to hair and nourishes skin without a greasy after feel.
