  • Vantage Speciality Chemicals

Vantage’s Metaupon™  surfactants  are  high  performance  foam  enhancers  that  create a rich and dense foam for mild rinse-off formulations. They are intended as foam boosters and foam stabilizers.

These sulfate-free surfactants are ideal for clean beauty concepts; ranging from shampoos and facial cleaners to bath additives.

In addition to their foam enhancement benefits, Metaupon™ surfactants provide a great skin feel, contributing to the overall improved sensorial experience. 

Metaupon™ surfactants are highly compatible; they will stabilize foam in the presence of oil and will perform very well alongside all nonionic and anionic surfactants. They are stable over a wide pH range.

Metaupon™ surfactants are non-ethoxylated and free from 1,4-Dioxane and preservatives. 

The range currently comprises of three grades. Metaupon™ KMT 30 MB (Approx. 30% active) and Metaupon™ OMT 40 MB (Approx 40% active) are recommended in liquid formulations for shampoos, skin care and toothpaste. Metaupon™ OMT (Approx. 70% active) is recommended in solid formulations, such as bath bombs and bath powders.
