TLC Ingredients works with our key supplier partners to stay on top of today’s hottest formulation trends. Please consider us a resource when trying to re-formulate existing products and when developing new formulations. Today’s consumers are looking for more “environmentally-friendly” and sustainable products.
More consumers are looking for biodegradable ingredients and products made from renewable-derived raw materials:
- Akzo Nobel has developed Dissolvine ® GL, brand name for GLDA, from natural and sustainable raw materials; it is readily biodegradable with a high solubility over a wide pH range. Dissolvine ® GL is a far more effective chelating agent than phosphates, phosphonates, and traditional chelating compounds EDTA and NTA. Applications of this product include detergents, personal care & cosmetics, hard surface cleaning, and automatic and mechanical dishwashing.
- TLC Ingredients works closely with Surfactant manufacturers to provide “friendlier” alternatives to petrochemical-derived surfactants, many of which are derived from sustainable Oleochemicals or Fatty Alcohols. Alkyl Polyglucosides and APG’s are also experiencing increased usage in many H I & I applications.
