Origin: The copolymer is made by polymerization of sodiumacrylate and sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate monomers. Isohexadecane is made in a multi-step process to form a branched C16 hydrocarbon from petroleum derivatives. Polysorbate 80 is obtained by esterification of sorbitol with one or three molecules of a fatty acid including stearic, lauric, oleic, and palmitic acid.
Also Known As: Sodium acrylate / sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer, isohexadecane, polysorbate 80
Overview: GelMaker EMU is an emulsifying and gelling polymer thickener. It is a pre-neutralized polymer in an inverse emulsion that forms hydro-swelling droplets in water. It emulsifiers all kinds of oily phases such as silicones and vegetable oils. It can produce cold emulsions, stabilize emulsions, and maintain the viscosity of a formula.
- Cold emulsions
- Skin-whitening products
- Self-tanning products
- Sun care products
- Baby care products
Ideal Concentration Level in Products: 0.5 to 2% in emulsions. 1% to 5% in gel creams. 12% in oils.
