Description: Magnesium aluminum silicate is a water-washed natural smectite clay that hydrates easily. Used in high pH personal care compositions such as depilatory, waving and hair relaxer products. Stabilizes both oil-in-water (o/w) and water-in-oil emulsions (w/o) at low concentrations (typically 1-2%) containing anionic or nonionic surfactants. The smectite colloidal structure effectively keeps the internal phase droplets suspended and separated and reduces the tendency of emulsions to thin out and break at elevated temperatures. Fine off-white to tan-greenish powder, odorless, pH 9.5 (w/w 5%). Viscosity about 500cps (4% solution). Insoluble but dispersible in water.

CAS: 12199-37-0

INCI Name: Magnesium aluminum silicate

Properties: Used as a rheological modifier and binder in various cosmetic preparations, especially in products with a high pH.
