Vietnam’s middle-class population is one of the fastest-growing middle-class populations in Southeast Asia. According to a survey conducted in June 2021 in Vietnam by Statista, 81 percent of respondents stated that they had the intention to purchase more biodegradable or eco-friendly products. In the same survey, around 89 percent of them would choose products with traceable and transparent origin.

When choosing a new preservative system what were the problems you needed to solve, which eventually led you to our solution?
When choosing a new preservative system, I need to solve problems. Trying to choose an effective preservative system, that is clean, safe, healthy, with long shelf life and a nice odor. Sustainability is at our core; we develop eco-friendly and sustainable formulations, so we are in constant need of natural preservative systems.
What motivated you to solve them?
My motivation is to bring value and results to our customers, making their life better by providing safe and effective products.
How have you benefited from using the SharoSENSE™ Plus preservative solution in your products?
In my opinion, there are many benefits to formulating with SharoSENSE™ Plus, it dissolves in water and gives transparent solutions, the smell is very nice. It is stable in a wide pH range and high temperatures, so I can use it to make emulsions, transparent serums, transparent facial wash, it is safe and doesn’t cause irritation, so I can apply it in eye care products as well.
What have you learned from the process and the integration of SharoSENSE™ Plus in your formulations?
I learned that I should dissolve SharoSENSE™ Plus in water first, and only after mix the other ingredients. In emulsions, I dissolve SharoSENSE™ Plus in water first and after that, I add the other ingredients to the water phase, I heat to 70-80°C and homogenize with oil phase at 70-80oC. If it didn’t dissolve well, it would be difficult to dissolve in thickener systems.
What would you say to other companies facing the same challenges as you did?
I will encourage them to try SharoSENSE™ Plus and to I hope they will benefit from it.
