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.
