The general methodological approach to development of modern foam washing




cleansing foam washing agents, detergents, pH, shampoos, gels, personal hygiene products


As the results of the analysis of the modern Ukrainian market for personal care products show, there is a clear tendency of the increased consumer interest, in particular to detergent-based liquid hygiene products.

Aim. To develop a methodological unified approach for creation of foaming agents in two pH intervals of 3.5-4.5 and 5.0-6.0.

Materials and methods. The methodological basis of this research is general scientific and applied methods of research, including methods of logical, historical, physicochemical, technological and analytical analysis. The modern Ukrainian market of foam washing agents and various types of detergents for obtaining satisfactory consumer properties were analyzed.

Results and discussion. A wide production range of foam washing agents of the foreign and domestic origin has been analyzed, and the active functional groups, as well as excipients and biologically active substances have been systematized. The conceptual differences in the approaches to development of parapharmaceutical cleansing agents and the tendency to use modern surfactants with the “soft” action have been revealed. It has been found that creation of uniform foaming agents in two pH intervals of 3.5-4.05 and 5.0-6.0 when applied to sensitive areas of the skin and mucous membranes determines the selection of detergents that would combine sufficient functional properties and dermatological characteristics. The analysis has shown that there is a need to develop new approaches to the use of multifunctional complexes of modern detergents.

Conclusions. A methodological unified approach for creation of foam washing agents in two pH intervals of 3.5-4.05 and 5.0-6.0 has been offered. It allows facilitating development of products and their introduction into domestic production.
