Alconox Critical Cleaning Solutions for Cosmetic Manufacturing Environments
Alconox develops a wide range of cosmetic cleaners that aim to reduce cleaning times for silicone, titanium dioxide and other hard-to-clean residues.
Our fast-acting, fragrance-free cosmetic cleaners are designed to remove dyes, petrolatum, and fragrances in challenging validated cosmetic cleaning applications.
Our solutions have cleaning validation support to meet regulatory requirements set by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Powdered precision cleaners for cosmetic manufacturing environments
Our concentrated Alconox detergent is designed for manual and ultrasonic cleaning applications involving ceramic, fibreglass, glassware, metals, porcelain, plastics and rubber.
It is authorised by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for applications in federally inspected meat and poultry plants, and a suitable replacement for corrosive acids and hazardous solvents. It also passes the inhibitory residue test for water analysis.
Alconox can be used to clean cosmetics manufacturing; laboratory; vacuum; and personal protective equipment and components, radioactive contaminated articles, optical parts, pharmaceutical apparatus, metal castings, forgings and stampings, industrial parts, tanks and reactors.
Hand and ultrasonic cleaning detergents on difficult residues
Detonox is suitable for high-performance removal of cosmetic and pharmaceutical polymers, as well as creams, resins, adhesive extracts and lotions.
It features a concentrated, highly emulsifying, free-rinsing formula that leaves no residues, and its non-caustic properties offer increased worker safety and material compatibility.
Detonox is recommended for cleaning surfaces made from ceramic, cement, glass, stainless-steel, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and solvent-resistant plastics and metals.
Low-foaming, high-wetting liquid detergents
Solujet is a nonionic, phosphate-free liquid cleaner that is suitable for labware washers, manual and ultrasonic cleaning. It features a corrosion-inhibited formula that makes it a recommended detergent for a wide range of materials, including glassware, metals, ceramic, rubber and fibreglass.
It is concentrated to ensure return on investment and its free-rinsing properties deliver reliable results and no interfering residues, so it can be used for clean-in-place (CIP) applications and floor-standing lab washing machines.
Concentrated, high-alkaline liquid cleaners for challenging residues
Keylajet is a low-foaming, corrosion-inhibited liquid detergent for hard-to-clean deposits such as soils, greases, oils, deposits, chemical and solvents, metal oxides, and more.
A caustic liquid detergent with chelators, its free-rinsing formula delivers reliable results and no interfering residues on manufacturing equipment, cosmetics residues, and contaminated metal components such as filters, exchangers, pump heads, engine blocks, metal castings, industrial parts, pipes, tanks and reactors.
In 1946, Louis Zisman and William Lebowitz established Alconox after discovering that Zisman developed a wetting agent that cleans glassware while leaving a residue.
Since then, we have provided laboratory detergents to the cosmetics, pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and healthcare industries to more than 50 countries worldwide.
