Oil-based Cleanser Surfactant...

Any suggestions for a mild surfactant that is liquid and oil soluble for an oil-based (anhydrous) cleanser formulation? Requirements are: moderate foaming and substantive to the skin. A lively discussion would be great!

  • I have a formula for a transparent foaming shower oil if you would like.

    Crill 6 (Sorbitan Isostearate) and Cithrol GMO (Glyceryl Oleate ) from Croda may fit the bill in terms of solubility. It's unlikely that this type of surfactants will foam IMHO.

    @Belassi seems promising in this application.

    Just a thought. Have never used it myself. Would have to get a sample and try.

    I'd like to see that formula, @chemist1, if you don't mind sharing.

    @Kemist - Maybe Olivem 300 and/or Olivem 400 might work in your application.
  • Many thanks to all the input.  I am evaluating some Barnet and BASF products. Decyl Glucoside and other AGP's are mild and provide great foaming but due to the water content (~50%) they are not fully oil soluble.  Also doing some work with phospholipids, etc.
  • Cetyl Betaine may work? That is usually in alcohol.
  • how to make thick dish washing liquid soap ingredients.
