Introduction
Liquid detergents and cleaners present a challenge to formulators in terms of structuring their compositions to provide easy-to-use and homogeneous liquids. Stability and compatibility of structurants in these formulations is the main technical challenge. At the same time, the market is moving towards more environmentally friendly detergents as a result of an increasing awareness of sustainability which is supported by legislation.
