Technical Details & Test Data

Sensorial and Thickening Data


Plantaren® 810 UP synergies in combination with BASF surfactants result in a high rate of foaming (mm/s), also known as foamability.

Test parameters:

  • Amount of foam: Amount of foam after two pumps
  • Foam cushion: Feel of the cushion, pillow, film between the fingers
  • Bubble size: Pore/bubble size and spread
  • Foam stability: Stability, how fast the bubbles burst
  • Creaminess: Feel of creaminess between the fingers
  • Foam body: Assessment of the sturdiness / plasticity of the foam
