: Self-wetting rheology modifier designed to provide moderate-to-high viscosity as well as stabilizing and suspending properties to personal care applications. The polymer is designed for surfactant-cleansing and electrolyte-containing formulations, just like carbopol ultrez 20. Soluble in water. pH: 5.8-6.3. Viscosity: 54,000 cps (1% in water). White powder. CAS
: 9003-01-4, 9007-16-3, 9007-17-4, 9062-04-8, 76050-42-5 INCI Name
: Acrylates C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer
- Rapid self-wetting polymer (3-5 minutes)
- Requires only minimal agitation
- Stabilizes emulsion-based and non-emulsion formulas including surfactant systems.
- Provides good viscosity and clarity for gels
: Use level is dependent upon desired viscosity and the nature and quantity of other formulation ingredients. However, typical use level is 0.2-3%. Sprinkle onto the surface of deionized water and stir thoroughly with a stick blender or other high-speed stirring device. Add then surfactants, conditioners, silicones, and other ingredients. Adjust then pH to at least 4.5-5. Without pH neutralization it may be slightly cloudy. Do not heat GelMaker Powder to more than 40oC (104F). For external use only. Applications
: Gels, shampoos, lotions, creams, scrubs.
