SurfThix™ DOE


SurfThix™ DOE is a non-ionic liquid thickener for surfactant systems that are difficult to thicken, for example, those made with non-ionics like decyl or lauryl glucoside or those that won’t thicken well with salt, such as disodium sulfosuccinate. It can be used as an emollient, irritation reducer, and irritation mitigator in cleansing products such as shampoo, facial cleansers, and shower gels.

SurfThix™ DOE does not thicken sulfate-based surfactants.  Generally those are thickened well with salt.

I would like to rave about the coustomer service. Quick run down: I bought LGPlus from somehwhere else I won't say I called that supplier and tried to find out if what I made was safe because for some reason started using it pass the usage rate. (Don't ask why I don't know?? Lol) notice I didnt want to know anything other than was it safe. Anyhow they couldnt help me at all...bummer So I called LC I was direct to Jenny at this point I'm bummed and ready to toss my creations. Not only did Jenny help me save my product she gave me a few option as to how to handle the situation definitely golden nuggets to hold on to. I recommend LC not only for their quality inventory (yes I've ordered and received) but also the customer service is awesome. Thank you again for your awesomeness!!
