Colonial Chemical has unveiled its Cola Liqid Amide, a non-ionic
surfactant based on chemistry that has been used to create
traditional alkanolamide surfactants and which also incorporates a
similar performance.

The surfactants form a series of product made from oils that are said to meet standard requirements and can be used in any cosmetic or toiletry application where traditional alkanolamide surfactants have been used in the past.

The range includes Cola Liqid DE - Cocamide DIPA, Cola Liqid DS - Sesameamide DIPA, Cola Liqid DA - Avocadoamide DIPA and Cola Liqid Do - Oleamide DIPA.

The company says that functional benefits from the range will include foam boosting, foam stabilization, viscosity control, skin emolliency, wetting, detergency, emulsification and solubilization of solubilization of solid actives.

According to evaluations carried out by the company, the performance of the range, compared to a traditional coco DEA Alkanolamide and a competitive amide in a typical shampoo formulation showed that the Cola Liqid Amides provided viscosity enhancement and reduction in saltlevels used to achieve viscosity.

Likewise, the evaluations also proved that the range improves the level of foam as well as the foam retention, when used as a typical amide surfactant dose of between 2 - 5 per cent.

Evaluation for eye and skin irritation potential. The evaluation proved that the Cola Liqid DC range was found to have an eye irritation score of 2, as opposed to a typical baby shampoo with a score of 11.

Colonial Chemical​ said that skin irritation were preformed on 52 tests subjects who wore a patch containing Cola Liqid DC showed that after 72 hours no changes in skin color or irritation were experienced.
