    Abstract: A cleaning composition may comprise a pH-switchable sudsing system and a cleansing system. The pH-switchable sudsing system may comprise a primary sudsing agent in combination with a pH-switchable co-surfactant. The pH-switchable co-surfactant is selected from diamine molecules having a general formula R1R2—N—R3—N+(CH3)3X?, where R1 is a linear or branched C8 to C16 hydrocarbyl, R2 is a linear or branched C1 to C3 hydrocarbyl, R3 is a linear or branched C3 to C6 hydrocarbylene, and X is a counteranion. The tertiary amine nitrogen of the pH-switchable co-surfactant has a pKa value. When the tertiary amine nitrogen is unprotonated, the pH-switchable co-surfactant may provide a suds-boosting effect in washing solutions at a washing pH above the pKa. When the tertiary amine nitrogen is protonated, the pH-switchable co-surfactant may provide a suds-reducing benefit in rinse waters at a rinse pH below the pKa.

  • Publication number: 20130072410
    Abstract: The present invention provides liquid cleaning compositions useful in cold water and hard water laundry applications, and methods for making and using such compositions. The compositions of the invention use surfactants or surfactant blends, such as ?-sulfofatty acid esters or mixtures thereof (optionally along with one or more additional components), that have increased solubility/stability at cold temperatures, at higher-than-usual concentrations, and/or in hard water, with the composition remaining as a clear liquid. In certain embodiments, the compositions of the invention may be provided in the form of a unit dose, for example in a water-soluble pack or pouch. In use, the compositions of the invention result in an enhanced detergency along with a reduced amount of residue remaining in the machine, on laundered garments or cleaned dishware or hard surfaces, and on the body in personal care settings, and demonstrate a longer shelf-life, particularly when stored or used in colder temperatures.

  • Publication number: 20130029895
    Abstract: The invention relates to a multiphase liquid detergent composition comprising at least one cleaning phase and at least one benefit phase, a surfactant, and a crystalline structurant. The crystalline structurant being substantially present in a non-lamellar phase. The invention also relates to a multiphase liquid detergent composition comprising at least two visually distinct liquid phases, a surfactant, and at least two incompatible or reactive materials. The first incompatible or reactive material is distributed in a first visually distinct phase and a second incompatible or reactive material is distributed in a second visually distinct phase. The present invention further relates to methods of cleaning dishware using such multiphase liquid detergent compositions.
