UK-based global speciality ingredients manufacturer Stephenson has launched a ground-breaking new soap free syndet called, Syndopal, Jamie Bentley, CEO stated: “We realised this was a real challenge for many of our customers who wanted to expand their range and create a soap free product but couldn’t due to how difficult it was to process and manufacture syndet. We knew that if we could develop a base that was more like traditional extruded soap noodles, we could help our customers access and open up new markets, add value and offer their own customers something different through product diversification.”
“Cosmetics brands and manufacturers benefit from improved processability compared with alternative syndets in the market. As Syndopal processes like an extruded vegetable soap noodle - with no dust and excellent production throughput, this results in vastly improved productivity such as increased run rates, better yields and cost savings.”
Syndopal is a soap-free, pH 5.5-6.5 base noodle, which produces an ultra-mild syndet bar, ensuring superior cleansing to produce premium quality syndet or combi-bars, which gently remove dirt, oil and make-up without disrupting the skin’s natural barrier.
As well as being 100% soap free and ultra-mild, it’s also suitable for sensitive skin, non-irritant, non-drying, paraben free and peg-free.
“We are entering a period of change in the market place with demand for sensitive skin products, the resurgence in bar soaps and solid shampoos plus growing pressures to reduce packaging and waste.
Syndopal really does open up the sector for manufacturers who previously would not have been able to manufacture syndet bars previously, across the pharmacy and cosmetic face and body market applications.”
