In response to the growing demand for skin-friendly and natural surfactants, Musim Mas has unveiled its new MASPHATE® CD 100N. This quality surfactant is also 100% coconut-derived, unlike most sodium coco sulphate (SCS) surfactants, marking a significant step toward meeting the evolving needs of the Home and Personal Care (HPC) sector. In this article, we’ll explore the growing trends in surfactants, Musim Mas’ solution to address these trends, and the group’s commitment to sustainability.

Surfactant Trends

The HPC sector is experiencing a notable shift in consumer preferences, with a heightened awareness of the potential effects of various ingredients on the skin. Factors such as the rise in sensitive skin concerns, increased awareness of ingredient impact, innovation in formulations, and evolving regulatory environments, particularly concerning substances like 1,4-dioxane, are driving this change.

Moreover, there is a parallel surge in the demand for environmentally friendly surfactants, with consumers and manufacturers alike recognizing the importance of transitioning from petroleum-based ingredients to renewable, bio-based materials. Statistics indicate a growing global inclination towards sustainable products, highlighting the need for eco-friendly alternatives in the surfactant industry.
