Rohm and Haas Introduces Thickener For Surfactant-Based Products

December 2, 2005

The new Aculyn 38 rheology modifier is more than just a thickener. The microgel structure of Aculyn 38 rheology modifier enables clarity and suspension of particles of all sizes in surfactant-based formulations. Available in an easy-to-use liquid form, Aculyn 38 has wide-ranging compatibility with other cosmetic ingredients.
Aculyn 38 microgels deliver even flow critical to performance and consumer product perception of personal care products. The microgels swell upon neutralization to structure the continuous aqueous phase of the formulation and are easily displaced resulting in rapid sheer thinning flow.
The suspending properties of the rheology modifier also make it ideal for suspending today’s silicone-containing products and antidandruff agents as well as pearlizing agents in a broad range of rinse-off and leave-on personal care applications. In addition, when Aculyn 38 rheology modifier is used as a suspending agent for inorganic actives such as titanium dioxide, manufacturers are assured their spray sunscreens deliver a quick, even spray for effective skin coverage.
