    ETERLAC Care Brochure


    Applications: sulfate-free facial cleansers, body washes, sulfate-free shampoos, conditioners  

    ESTERLAC® Care+ is a 100% biobased sodium salt derived from natural L-lactic acid and isostearic acid. Although slightly anionic, it behaves like a non-ionic co-surfactant. As a natural honey-like liquid, this product can replace amide/MEA in sulfate-free cleansers or shampoos and provide effective solubilization to create clear formulas. As a foam and flow enhancer, it contributes to after-feel, and delivers unique feel. ESTERLAC Care+ can enhance the way users experience silicone-free, sulfate-free shampoos by delivering substantive properties to hair, allowing polymers to cling more easily to hair shafts and ensure a smooth, moisturized finish. The addition of lactic acid can offer further benefits by filling in keratin spots, forming bridges, reducing split ends, and providing a healthy, shiny look in use.











    As a natural co-surfactant, just 3 – 5% ESTERLAC Care+, depending on your formulation, can provide significant benefits.
