The cosmetic industry has evolved a lot in what refers to rheology modifiers for water-based cosmetics nevertheless it is difficult to find good thickeners for cosmetic oils.
From Quimidroga we would like to give a solution to that problem. That’s why together with our partner Lubrizol, we present the polymer OILKEMIA™ 5S Polymer, a new rheology modifier for cosmetic oils.
With this new multifunctional ingredient soluble in oil we can create new formats and maximize the visual effects in oily systems.
OILKEMIA™ 5S Polymer offers 5 key benefits:
- It is an efficient thickener for a great variety of anhydrous systems and emulsions.
- We obtain an excellent clarity with different types of oils.
- Capacity to suspend solids or liquids in oils of medium to high polarity.
- Stabiliser for emulsions even allowing the formulation of emulsions without emulsifier.
- Improvement of the sensory perception of the formulation, providing a smooth and non-tacky feeling.
OILKEMIA™ 5S Polymer is a thickener for anhydrous systems through an associative mechanism. Once dispersed in oil, the interactions polymer-polymer and the hydrogen bonding between polymer-oil result in the gelation and that’s why it offers consistent results for a wide range of oils.
Besides of its capacity to innovate in the textures, OILKEMIA™ 5S Polymer is compatible with organic UV filters, inorganic pigments, metal oxide pigments and mica, what allows also the formulation of sun care products and decorative cosmetic products.
This product is available in Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
