Evonik has introduced Antil 500 Pellets, a novel and versatile rheology modifier for various cleansing formulations.
As an innovative hydrophilic polymer, Antil 500 Pellets enables a significant reduction of the active surfactant level in standard cleansing formulations. In addition, the efficiency and high flexibility of Antil 500 Pellets facilitate the thickening of challenging surfactant systems, such as sulfate-free formulas, effectively supporting the trend for milder cleansing in personal care.
The 100% active, preservative-free solid is clearly soluble in water and processable at room temperature. Furthermore, they are stable against hydrolysis and effective over a wide pH range. The thickening agent provides a rich formulation texture with Newtonian flow behaviour but without changing the foaming characteristics, which is essential for fulfilling the consumers’ sensorial expectations of personal cleansing products.
