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.

Formulating Guidelines

  • SurfThix™ DOE may need to be heated slightly in a water bath at up to 60°C for up to 10 minutes as it is quite thick before using.
  • It can be added at 0.5% increments until desired viscosity is achieved.
  • Use as the final step in the formulating process at room temperature after the addition of fragrance or essential oil, color, and preservative as those final ingredients may reduce or increase the viscosity, which will alter how much SurfThix™ DOE you wish to add.
  • The pH of the formulation should be adjusted to between 6.0 - 6.8 prior to the addition ofSurfThix™ DOE
  • at the end of the formulation process.

Susan Wilkinson

I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC
Wanda, (Maria's Natural Lotion)

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
