CAS: 77019-71-7, 4390-04-9, 9005-65-6

INCI Name: Sodium acrylate / sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, isohexadecane, polysorbate 80

  • Excellent thickener by forming gels over a wide ph range (4-12)
  • Emulsifies all kinds of oily phases (up to 40%) including silicones and vegetable oils without the addition of a conventional emulsifier
  • Able to produce cold emulsions
  • Stabilizes emulsions and maintains the viscosity of a formula
  • Gives light and pleasant texture to spread on skin

Use: Emulsions: 0.5-2%. Can be added into fat or water phase, or at the end of emulsification. Needs good mixing with hand mixer to get smooth creams. Gel creams: 1-5%. When using over 3% use at least 12% oils for best performance. For external use only.

Applications: Gel-creams, emulsion-gels, cold emulsions, lotions, creams, skin-whitening /self-tanning products, sun care & baby care products, mascara, foundations.

Country of Origin: France

Raw material source: Sodiumacrylate, sorbitol, vegetable oils, petroleum derivatives

Manufacture: The copolymer is made by polymerization of sodiumacrylate and sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate monomers. Isohexadecane is made in a multi-step process to form a branched C16 hydrocarbon from petroleum derivatives. Polysorbate 80 is obtained by esterification of sorbitol with one or three molecules of a fatty acid including stearic, lauric, oleic, and palmitic acid.
