Both mild and functionally superior

The OLMAG surfactants will have an impact on both the cosmetics and personal care sector striving to become more green and sustainable and on the pharmaceutical industry, looking for alternatives to polysorbate. The OLMAG surfactants will provide the industry with a unique, game-changing technology and substantially improve on market position.

The OLMAG surfactants are highly suitable for use in various cosmetics and personal care products. They are milder and less irritating than conventional alkylglycosides and add interesting features to the range of completely “green” and biobased nonionic surfactants available for formulation, such as excellent wetting, dispersion, and emulsification properties.

OLMAG surfactants will make it possible to formulate highly innovative and completely green cosmetics and personal care products without compromising on quality.

The OLMAG surfactants have none of the drawbacks with oxidation and formation of formaldehyde that are associated with ethoxylated surfactants such as polysorbate. The OLMAG surfactants can even be autoclaved without losing their properties, hence making it possible to heat sterilize pharmaceuticals, something which is not possible today since polysorbate cannot tolerate such high temperatures. Moreover, the OLMAG surfactants have proven to be exceptionally efficient as dispersion agents and outbeat both polysorbate and conventional alkylglycosides in dispersion of micronised hydrophobic particles.

Using OLMAG surfactants for the formulation of pharmaceuticals will lead to more stable products, more successful clinical trials, less side-effects and the possibility of formulating APIs which today are difficult to formulate with existing technology.
