Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amide, also known as N, N-Stearyl Phthalic Acid Amide or N, N-Tollow Phthalic Acid Amide, is a biodegradable ingredient contained in many cosmetics and personal care products, such as shampoos, body cleansers, conditioners, exfoliant (scrub), and masks. According to a market report released by MarketWatch in August 2022, the Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amide market segments by applications mainly involve cosmetics, skin care products, and hair care products, indicating its significance in the daily chemical industry. Functions Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amides can be applied as surfactants for cosmetics as well as effective emulsifiers and suspending agents for silicones, zinc pyrithione, sulfur, selenium sulfide, coal tar, and other difficult-to-suspend materials. They provide uniform emulsification and/or suspension of active ingredients and make cosmetics and other personal care products present better properties. Applications Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amides, are typically applied as dispersing agents, emulsifying agents, or lubricants in formulation projects. Thanks to their excellent emulsifying, dispersing, lubricating, and solubilizing abilities, plus the desired stable properties, these raw materials have largely smoothed the formulation process and brought better final products. Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amides are regarded as versatile compounds in cosmetic products so it is no wonder that they find applications as conditioning agents or emollients. They are designed to lubricate biological surfaces and in this way they condition. They work well in skin products to change the feel of an applied product and can also be used to increase flexibility in hair. However, the downside is that they can weigh hair down and make it feel greasy. Toxicity and safety concerns In a paper Distearyl phthalic acid amide, a new contact allergen published on PubMed, this ingredient was spotted as a risky contact allergen, raising public concerns about its safety. According to the GHS Hazard Statements, Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amide may cause long-lasting harmful effects on aquatic life as well, which should be given special attention. Availability at BOC Sciences: BOC Sciences has launched mass production of Distearyl Phthalic Acid Amide for quite a while. The current ample in-stock quantities, in tons and greater levels, enable BOC Sciences to deal with bulk orders, either for research or commercial use. To address the problems of toxicity and safety, BOC Sciences executes strict quality control with advanced analytical instruments (NMR, LC-MS/MS, HPLC, etc.). Besides, appropriate packaging, storage, and shipment are also taken into consideration to deliver the best products.
