Up to now, it was believed that surfactants could provide either excellent cleansing power or outstanding skin compatibility, but not both. However, PGP was not satisfied with this assumption, and achieved a major breakthrough in the field of skin cleansing. In the course of a three-year project in cooperation with scientists of the University of Osnabrück, the PGP skin care experts developed a true novelty: a surfactant combination that is as effective as it is skin-friendly.
OptiTens® is powerful against dirt and offers best cleaning properties, but is very gentle to the skin.
The innovative surfactant combination protects the skin's natural lipids. As a result, the epidermis does not dry out and maintains its natural barrier function – even in case of frequent washing.
OptiTens® is breaking new ground by offering skin cleansers that completely remove even heavy and highly-adhesive dirt without exposing occupationally-stressed skin to undue damage. PGP has filed a patent for OptiTens®. The innovative surfactant combination is the basis for a new generation of PGP products offering significant benefits for occupational skin care.
