Product Description


Sodium Polyacrylate (and) Dimethicone (and) Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Trideceth-6 (and) PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone


Stable thickener-emulsifier used to increase viscosity of lotions without having to use heating. The emulsion contains two surfactants, a silicone emulsifier (PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone) to stabilize and an inverting agent (Trideceth-6) that helps to bring the polymer into contact with the aqueous phase of the formulation. It can be used in a wide range of personal care applications such as skin care, sun care, color cosmetics, rinse-off and leave-on hair conditioners and hair styling products.
