Description: Ready-to-use anionic polymer in powder form for creating clear aqueous gels without the need for pH neutralization. Has extreme resistance to electrolytes up to 10% salt. The polymer works also as a thickener and stabilizer in emulsions and surfactant systems and offers excellent particle suspension power. It is compatible with ethanol and other solvents, surfactants, AHAs, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, sun filters and sunscreens, and pigments. Appearance: White powder. pH as supplied: 4 - 5.5 (when prepared as 1.5% aqueous gel). Dispersible in cold and hot water.

CAS: 111286-86-3

INCI Name: Polyacrylate crosspolymer-6

Properties: Produces clear aqueous gels providing an elegant and soft, silicone-like skin feel. Can be used also to thicken and/or stabilize emulsions (creams & lotions) in combination with other thickeners including gums, pectins, or cellulose derivatives. Gelmaker PH also acts wells as oil thickener (even at low concentrations) as it works synergistically with fatty alcohols (e.g. cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol etc). In combination with anionic or non-ionic surfactants GelMaker PH increases thickness and foam density.

Use: GelMaker PH can be used in cold or hot solutions. For making clear gels, sprinkle the powder over the aqueous phase and mix at low speed (500-1500rpm) while adding additional ingredients (e.g. minerals) for about 5-10 minutes to allow it to hydrate. For making cream gels, sprinkle the powder over the hot or cold oil phase. Typical use level is 0.5 - 5%. Gels are stable between pH 2 and 8. For external use only.

Applications: Clear gels, creams, lotions, transparent hair gels, sun care products
