Your wardrobe isn’t the only thing you should be changing as winter approaches – you also need to relook your skin care regimen. Those lightweight gel moisturisers and charcoal cleansers that worked just fine in the summer months simply won’t cut it in winter.
As colder temperatures approach, dry air, frigid winds and constant exposure to heaters suck the moisture from your skin and strip it of the oils that are essential for a healthy skin barrier function. Often skin will become sensitive so keeping it clean and non-reactive may be a challenge.
Metaupon surfactants from Vantage Specialty Chemicals are extremely mild and recommended for use in shampoo, facial cleansers for sensitive skin and baby care formulations. They can create dense, uniform and thicker foam, providing the end user with a delightful sensory experience. Their after-feel is also noticeable and characterised by a comfortable film-residue and moisturising sensation on the skin.

Unique and tailor-made surfactants
Vantage offers a wide range of special surfactants for cosmetic formulations, such as hair conditioning agents, emulsifiers and mild surfactants. Our products for personal care are tailor made and can be adapted to a formulator’s specific needs. Our products cover specific applications such as baby care, men’s care, hair styling and perfumes.
Vantage specifies the ethoxylation/propoxylation degree according to a formulator’s exact requirements. Metaupon OMT, KMT and Sodium Isethionate are very effective as co-surfactants and compatible with all non-ionic and anionic surfactants. They stand out due to their stability over a broad pH range and their hard water resistance. These products can be used in liquid soaps of all types, syndet, combo bars and bubble baths with rich lather.
Commitment to sustainability
Vantage is committed to establishing a sustainable supply chain for its ingredients and believes RSPO’s Mass Balance certification is a key step in reaching this goal. Metaupon surfactants are based on sustainably sourced palm oil, which is compliant with RSPO’s Mass Balance criteria.
