White liquid laundry detergent

Hi all,

I would like to produce white liquid laundry detergent. I am using Glycol distearate but I don't need this shiny effect. Is there any option how to get white color of the liquid laundry detergent? I was thinking about Styrene/acrylate copolymer but I didn't get the sample yet. I am not sure if it is suitable for this kind of product.

Thank you for your help.

    You are right Martina, Acusol OP305 @ around 0.25-0.5% will give you enough opacity. Add it last in the formulation after diluting with batch water, also the pH should be around 7-8.

    An polymer based opacifier is what you need. Ask your supplier for a opacifier suitable for your product type and pH level.

    I have used an Esicryl branded opacifier in the past and it worked well but there is also a range of Acusol opacifiers that might meet your needs.
