EXOsoft ZN is a mild anionic surfactant that belongs to the group of alkyl ether sulphates with the name defined by INCI as Zinc Coceth Sulfate. A new generation product with a very mild effect on the skin, in the form of a clear water solution with an active substance concentration in the range of 23.5-25.5%. The product is preserved with sodium benzoate.
The product is used as an ingredient of washing and cleaning preparations, mainly applied in the cosmetic formulations. EXOsoft ZN has very good foaming and anti-dandruff properties. Additionally, the product is characterized by good water solubility and resistance to hard water. The product is compatible with other anionic, non-ionic and amphoteric surfactants.
The product is used to make bath foams with deodorizing properties. The formulations containing EXOsoft ZN should have a pH value in the range lower than 5.0 – 5.5 due to a possibility of precipitation of zinc hydroxide and opacity of the final product.
The diluted solutions of EXOsoft ZN may be concentrated by adding alkanolamides of fatty acids or electrolytes (sodium chloride). The foam structure and volume may be modified by introducing sulfosuccinates or amphoteric compounds into the formulations of alkanolamides.
