As a superior thickener, Crothix produces a substantial viscosity in detergent systems, even at low levels. This multi-functional ingredient also acts as a counter-irritant aiding the formulation of mild surfactant systems. Crothix requires no neutralisation and works well in clear and hard-to-thicken systems. Sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Crothix MBAL. Croda considers the RSPO’s Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Crothix MBAL.
