Penreco Introduces
Ester-based Versagel
● Versagel MN is the first in a new series
of crystal-clear gelled esters from
Penreco, Houston, TX. Applications
include skin care, makeup and lip products.
The product gives formulators
versatility and performance for cosmetics
and sun care. The ester base provides
moisturization, conditioning and
non-greasy emolliency. “Because the
neat ester isononyl isononanoate is
used in cosmetic and treatment for
body and face, the gels can be easily
plugged into existing formulations and
will provide additional benefits,” said
Lin Healy, senior research associate.
