Session III: R&D Advancements and Innovative Technologies

Moderator: TBD

  1. Opening Keynote: New Technologies and Trends in Disinfection Cleaning

    Heather Barker | Global VP Regulatory, Hygiene/Home of Reckitt Benckiser

    The world of disinfection is not what it used to be, as consumer behaviors, technologies, and regulations evolve. Consumer expectations & experience now includes easy access to information, convenience, and safety. Regulators are also continuously revaluating legislations to ensure that disinfecting products meet high human and environmental safety standards. Learn more about how these changes have transformed disinfection and consumer goods with new innovative technologies, new means of delivery, and new tools of communication.

  2. Meeting consumer expectations for improved fabric conditioning performance

    Dr. Miyako Hisamoto | Applied Technology Manager Product Line Cleaning Solutions Nutrition & Care – Care Solutions of Evonik Corporation

    Meeting consumer expectations for improved fabric conditioning performance

    In the current field of fabric softeners, consumers do not just want fabric softening but fabric conditioning. They expect multiple benefits from the same dose that they have always used, which includes making fabrics last longer, reducing wrinkles, and imparting long lasting fragrance in addition to softening. At Evonik, we thrive on innovation and we have identified a new emulsion additive containing organomodified silicone that will satisfy these desires of the consumer. This presentation will focus on the applications of the organomodified silicone emulsion in fabric conditioning, including color retention, fragrance retention, wrinkle reduction, and pilling prevention. The key to success in the marketplace is to understand

    consumer perceptions and to exceed the consumer's expectations.

Track 1 | Household & Personal Care

Session V: R&D Innovation in Personal & Household

In this session, talk deeper about the latest trends in the household & personal care category.  Hear about how organizations have been successful with an e-commerce business model, and how probiotic cleaning solutions have become front and center with the movement towards more natural products.  Explore the latest R&D happening in the sector from the skin and home microbiome and more.

  1. Fragrance-enhancing compositions for household products

    Dr. Yelloji-Rao Mirajkar, Ph.D. | Senior Technical Associate of Colgate-Palmolive Company, USA in R&D - Flavors and Fragrances Technology

    Designing fragrance-enhancing compositions for delivering multi-benefits from varieties of household products is highly essential for acceptance and success in the consumer world.

    Learn more a technology that involves designing fragrance-enhancing compositions suitable for fabric softener and conditioner formulations.  These technologies not only deliver traditional benefits associated with fragrance but also fragrance during ironing thereby imparting a pleasant experience of ironing for the consumers.  This product with this technology was successfully developed and launched in Europe.

  2. Sustainable Fabric Technology Designed to Keep Garments Looking Newer, Longer

    Scott Tuchinsky | Global Sales Director - Home Care & Water Treatment of Croda

    Consumers are now demanding new performance attributes and sustainability benefits from their laundry products. To address this need, we will present a bio-polymer based additive for fabric softeners, prepared from renewable plant-based materials, that provides measurable improvements in fabric protection compared to the use of traditional fabric softener alone. The bio-polymer is highly substantive to textile fibers, delivering color protection, reduced greying of whites, and reduced damage to fabrics through multiple washing and drying cycles. As a result, fabrics are kept looking newer for longer, reducing the need to replace garments and delivering higher sustainability for consumers.

  3. The next generation of more naturally sourced, high performance cleaners: Vegetable-based narrow range ethoxylates

    Stuart Holt | Global Technical Marketing Manager – Cleaning of Nouryon

    Consumers are increasingly aware of their responsibility to the environment in the selection of their cleaning products, with an increasing focus on renewable and sustainably sourced surfactants, with the expectation of excellent product performance along with low ecotoxity and minimal environmental impact. In household hard surface cleaning, ethoxylates of synthetic fatty alcohols have traditionally been used in such formulations. Nouryon's newly introduced vegetable-based narrow range ethoxylate products offer superior cleaning, environmental performance, low odor and desirable physical characteristics to the cleaning market for the first time.

Session VII: Business Development in Personal & Household

Protecting your business, improving resource efficiency and boosting productivity

  1. Brands Making an Impact: Selling Less Chemicals and More Natural Products Through Non-Traditional Channels

    What can we learn from a successful business model that doesn’t revolve around the more traditional consumer advertising channels?  Hear from a successful company who doesn’t go through the typical consumer channel.  Hear what’s different with respect to technology, chemistry, packaging and overall marketing strategy.

  2. The advantages of probiotics as a biological cleaner

    Coming soon!

    Product design entails a series of decisions and choices, ranging form the selection of materials and manufacturing processes to choices related to shape and function.  Lean more about the integration of Oxiteno’s Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) of product design which addresses the relationship between physical symptoms (defined by material, energy flow and raw materials) and market positioning.  LCA is based on ISO 1404 and 14044 to evaluate the environmental profile of a product and it is a very useful tool to help design more sustainable products.

Track 2 | Industrial & Institutional

Session V: Business Development in I&I

Protecting your business, improving resource efficiency and boosting productivity

  3. Less Water and More Actives in Formulas to Reduce the Carbon Footprint

    Shoaib Arif | Research Chemist of Pilot Chemical Co.

    A major trend in cleaning products is less water and more actives in the formula for sustainability and lessening of the carbon foot prints via reduced packaging, not shipping water around the world and less process time and energy to make the product. 

    This talk will review an innovative, blend of anionic, nonionic and cationic surfactants that is about 100% active liquid. It can be used to make a wide variety of H I & I cleaners. Formulation techniques to develop products like laundry detergents, dish wash, car wash, all-purpose cleaner, tub and tile cleaner and many more will be discussed. Performance advantages and test data will be presented to show the cost /performance benefits.
