INCI: Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6
Application:This is a versatile powdered thickener that can be used in cream, serum, surfactant and exfoliant based formulations due to its electrolyte tolerance, yield value and emulsion stabilising properties.The thickener hydrates in cold water making cold-process production possible and produces transparent gels with an elegant, non-tacky skin feel. In surfactant formulations this thickener increases foam density and stability.You will need a mechanical mixer to hydrate this polymer as it does take a few minutes of medium to high speed mixing to fully hydrate and swell the polymer. Avoid entrapping air into the gel as trapped air can speed up product oxidation and put the product under a higher micro burden.
This material is compatible with AHA's, Salicylic Acid, Solvents, DHA, Peroxide and Minerals.
pH Range: 2-8
Usage Levels: 0.15-5%
