INCI Name: Polyamide-3

  • Provides multifunctional benefits including uniform delivery of actives, pigments and solids while reducing or eliminating the need for emulsifiers
  • Forms shear thinning emulsions that provide a positive sensory feel while improving skin hydration
  • Can stabilize emulsions over a broad pH range and accommodate high oil and fat loadings including silicones
  • Forms gelled oil-in-water and water-in-gelled-oil emulsions that are pH insensitive (gels can be water soluble or insoluble)
  • Ads water-resistance to sunscreens and stabilizes inorganic UV filters
  • Compatible with common emollients used in sun care emulsions
  • Provides excellent skin feel with low tack
  • Acts as emulsion stabilizers and reduces the need for adding multiple emulsifiers in formulas

Use: Softens at 40°C/100°F. Typical use level 1-10%. Can be used to make solid gels of medium polar organic liquids such as emollient esters, glycols, alcohols and polar surfactants. Makes clear sticks, good pigment dispersion. If added to castor oil you will get an instant lip gloss with very nice feel and gloss. For external use only.  Tip: Add very small amounts to the heated oil, under constant agitation until melted, before adding more, to avoid clumping.

Applications: Creams, lotions, sticks, sunscreen, color cosmetics, ethanol gels and sprays.
