Kerfoot Group, a leading supplier of natural and organic plant-based oils and ingredients to the food manufacturing and personal care sectors, has boosted its impressive product portfolio with the addition of Stephenson’s Syndopour 200-MB for its personal care range.
“The unique melt & pour syndet base of Syndopour 200-MB is ultra-mild and 100% soap free – making it ideal for sensitive skin types,” explains Jeremy Founde, Procurement Manager at Kerfoot. “Sensitive skin is an area of high growth in personal care development and innovation as consumers are looking for alternatives to harsh soap-based products.”
Consumer demand for sensitive skin care is growing and offers a blossoming opportunity for brands. In one published report, more than 50% of women in the US experienced incidences related to sensitive skin during the past 18 years with 38% of women in the UK choosing ‘sensitive’ products versus 34% choosing ‘normal’ during a skin survey. This presents a potential shift in the skin care market offering brands an opportunity to appeal to consumers concerned with irritation.1
Syndopour 200-MB offers a 100%, dermatologically tested soap-free Syndet base. With a lower pH than traditional soap, it is ideal for a wide range of applications tailored to sensitive skin.
“The Melt & Pour base provides accessibility to produce syndet bars by hot pour and does not require any industrial pressing equipment. It can be used to create a wide range of solid bar formats that are mild, and pH balanced, for use in hair, body, facial, shaving, and exfoliating scrub bars. It is also certified sustainable RSPO, vegan and readily biodegradable.
“Syndopour 200-MB is available in a range of packaging options, ranging from 1kg to 11.5kg boxes, that offer you the ability to pick something which fits your needs perfectly”, says Alec Foster, Channel Development Manager at Stephenson.
“We are extremely excited about the possibilities offered by Syndopour 200-MB in the creation of soap bars for the personal and skincare sector. It offers a luxurious lather and high foaming properties, which provide a perfect starting point for an innovative range of pH-neutral bars,” Founde concludes.
