Leave PEG behind for Good. Cola®Teric HBS for PEG-Free Formulations

Cola®Teric HBS is an excellent surfactant solution for thickening cleansers without PEG esters. The addition of just 1% Cola®Teric HBS as supplied dramatically improves viscosity in formulations as shown below.


Traditional alkanolamides improve viscosity performance primarily by reducing the amount of salt needed to reach a target viscosity. Incremental viscosity boosting can be realized, but is typically relatively small. Cola®Teric HBS can dramatically increase the overall salt response.

Cola®Lux MO-HP is the answer for your LO question.

What you need to recommend for bleach and peroxide stable formulations when you can’t get Lauramine Oxide.

Cola®Lux MO-HP is high purity Myristamine Oxide, an amine oxide-based surfactant with a C14 (tetradecyl) alkyl tail. Cola®Lux MO-HP has similar foam and performance characteristics to Lauramine Oxide, and is bleach and peroxide stable.

You can continue to wait until sometime later in the fall for the shortage of Lauramine Oxide to come to an end. Or begin today – right now – offering this product as a substitute for Lauramine Oxide. Contact us about Cola®Lux MO-HP and start giving answers that customers appreciate. Like a delivery date.

Cola®Lux MO-HP is Myristamine Oxide (high purity).
