Laureth 3, laureth 7 Aplications

Greetings, and thanks for reading my post.

I just want to know if someone has ever used Laureth 3 ò Laureth 7 for any cosmetic aplication, the reason for this Random question is because there are not enought suppliers in my country for almost any raw material, but i just found a supplier that keeps me offering those Laureths, i just dont want to lose that opportunity.

There are not a lot reference on the internet, but it seems that they have synergic effects with cationic or anonionic formulations. But the supplier only offer bulk sells and does not give me the chance to test it.  judging by the HLB i can only tell that they are w/o solubilizer (Laureth 3),and maybe o/w solubilizer (Laureth 7), but i can not ensure that the will work as emulsifiers for creams or conditioners

    Laureths are common emulsifiers /solubilizers and can be used in a lot of cosmetic formulations including creams and lotions.  However, it is impossible to say if they will work in your formulation without knowing the other ingredients in the formula.

    @kot you're not looking very hard then; they're commodity chemicals, readily available from multiple suppliers

    PCPC international buyers guide should be the first place any of us look for sourcing raw materials:

    Since the PCPC is the organization responsible for issuing INCI names, the buyers guide is also my ultimate reference on the accuracy of an INCI name.
