New Syndet Base Provides Environmental Opportunities for Personal Care Market

With soap bars on the rise and consumers becoming more and more cautious about the environment, personal care brands are looking for options to differentiate their products with eco-packaging or zero packaging. In this blog we talk about our soap-free syndet base, Syndopal, suitable for packaging free soap bars, shampoo bars and other solid bars for cosmetic and body applications.

Syndopal for waste free beauty bars

Personal Care industry has seen a lot of focus on sustainability with growing consumer demand for plastic-free and waste free packaging applications, based on Global Consumer Trends. The pressure to reduce packaging and waste continues to build and in a changing market with the growth in sensitive skin products, the resurgence in bar soaps and solid shampoos continues to grow.

Now is the perfect time to look at new opportunities for brands in the market with packaging-free applications. New soap-free Syndopal with its improved processability, ph 5.5-6.5 noodle base and ultra-mild characteristics, can help at capitalising in the growing pharmacy and cosmetic markets. Syndopal opens up these sectors to manufacturers who would not have been able to manufacture syndet bars previously. Create new business opportunities and products, with less or no-packaging and improve your brand’s environmental credentials.

New syndet opportunities for the cosmetic, face & body market

According to Mintel trends report for 2019, there are many opportunities for NPD development globally for soap and bath products addressing sensitive skin. With its new syndet base, Syndopal, brands can tap into new business opportunities across the cosmetic face and body market.

Stephenson have developed a ph 5.5-6.5 base noodle, which produces an ultra-mild syndet bar, ensuring superior cleansing to produce premium quality syndet or combi-bars, which gently remove dirt, oil and make-up without disrupting the skin’s natural barrier. As well as being 100% soap free and ultra-mild, it’s also suitable for sensitive skin, non-irritant, non-drying, paraben free and peg-free.

"“We realised this was a real challenge for many of our customers who wanted to expand their range and create soap free products but couldn’t due to how difficult it was to process and manufacture syndet. We knew that if we could develop a base that was more like traditional extruded soap noodles, we could help our customers access and open up new markets, add value and offer their own customers something different through product diversification.” - Jamie Bentley, CEO at Stephenson"

Cosmetics brands and manufacturers can benefit from improved processability compared with alternative syndets in the market. As Syndopal processes like an extruded vegetable soap noodle - with no dust and excellent production throughput, this results in vastly improved productivity such as increased run rates, better yields and cost savings. Product opportunities include; Moisturising bar, Makeup remover bar, Premium perfume bar, Exfoliating bar, Skin conditioning bar.
