Alfa Chemicals holds stock of a wide range of regularly sold chemicals at its UK warehouse. The standard lead time for stock items is guaranteed delivery within 5 working days, express delivery guarantees delivery within 2 working days. Non-stock items are brought in to order; lead times vary depending on the manufacturer. To help reduce lead times for non-stock items we can arrange to hold stock of customer specific materials, provided that the demand is covered by a call-off order.
As well as its own warehouse in Reading, Berkshire. Alfa Chemicals uses specialist warehouse companies which have a long history of working with Alfa. The warehousing has approval for handling hazardous and restricted chemicals and has been approved by independent auditors from customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
Alfa Chemicals uses specialist chemical freight companies that have experience in handling hazardous materials. The partners we use have been pre-approved by our logistics and quality managers and have a long track record of working with Alfa.
Our logistics department has a full time customer service function dedicated to monitoring the progress of customer orders to ensure any issues are dealt with as soon as possible and customers are kept fully informed of the progress of their deliveries.
A simple way to make elegant glossy lipbalms
7/31/2012 10:24:20 AM
Kesterwax K82D is a remarkable ingredient which can be used to create luxurious silky lipbalms with substantivity and high gloss.
This material, which is an ester of a vegetable dimer acid and a long chain fatty alcohol, mimics microcrystalline waxes to bind oil and gel it at extremely low concentrations meaning formulations are non-sticky and do not leave any taste residue.
The typical chain length of the molecule is between C76 and C115 therefore the gelling power is very strong particularly when vegetable oils are used, although the ingredient will gel most oils including silicones. Gels vary from opaque to nearly transparent.
INCI: Di-C20-40 Alkyl Dimer Dilinoleate
