New plant-derived product launches for 2018:
Jarchem offers one of the largest portfolios of Shea Butter Products and Shea Butter Derivatives. This year the company continues to expand its offerings and has launched Jarplex SPG, a new Shea Butter Derivative that is 100 percent natural and functions as a conditioning additive for cleaning formulations. Jarplex SPG provides the excellent moisturisation properties of our unique water dispersible Shea technology with a creamy lather. This product also has additional benefits of added pearlescence, opacity, and increased viscosity. Jarplex SPG is best when used with Sucranov SF.
Jarchem’s Sucranov SF is a ready-to-use blend of mild surfactants with superior foam height and longer lasting foam. When used alongside with Jarplex SPG, the result is a high performing surfactant system with rich, creamy foam and excellent moisturisation.
This year Jarchem is also introducing a new natural alternative to animal derived Cosmetic Grade Lanolin. Jarchem’s new Vegecare Lanolin Alternatives is the perfect replacement offered in oil, semi-solid, and wax forms. It works just like animal derived lanolin and offers functions of excellent moisturisation, stabilisation, shine and gloss, water resistance, and viscosity building.
The South African agent for Jarchem is The Care Co.
