Identification & Functionality

Poly Suga® Mulse D9 Features & Benefits

Product Highlights

Poly Suga®Mulse D9 is a PEG-free, nonionic fragrance solubilizer made from 100% biobased raw materials. It is hydrophilic, freely soluble or dispersible in water, and soluble in varying degrees in organic liquids. Poly Suga®Mulse D9 is used for oil-in-water (O/W) emulsifi - cation, dispersion or solubilization of fragrances and all types of oils. It is compatible with nonionic, cationic and anionic surfactants and is eff ective in systems with relatively high levels of electrolyte, acid, or base.

Poly Suga®Mulse D9 is an excellent solubilizer for fragrances in water-only and water-and-surfactant systems. Poly Suga®Mulse D9 compares favorably to ethoxylated materials (such as Tween® 20 and PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil) in both ease-of-use and use levels. Poly Suga®Mulse D9 may also be used as a co-emulsifi er in the formulation of creams and lotions.

  • Solubilizes a broad range of lipophilic substances in pure aqueous or aqueous alcoholic systems
  • Offers excellent performance comparable to benchmark PEG-free solubilizers
  • Stable over a broad pH range
  • Easy to handle; cold or hot processed
  • Freely soluble in water
  • Minimal impact on color; no impact on odor in final formulation
  • No impact on viscosity on the final formulation
