Formulation advantages of transparent oil thickening

Berg + Schmidt describes a new ingredient for natural and globally approved oil gels, transforming textures and new playful concepts

ABSTRACT

Time dedicated to new formulation development is getting shorter and shorter which is why formulators are constantly looking for new solutions making their lives easier, i.e. easy to add-in ingredients which do not require too long process time. When it comes to transparent oil gels, viscosity and flow behaviour play an important role for the well-being of the consumer while applying the product. There are existing ingredients like polymers or organoclays which still leave some space for improvement. This article deals with a new ingredient solution for natural and globally approved oil gels, transforming textures and new playful concepts

As with most cosmetic products, the actual value is determined by consumer expectation and perception of the formulation. Once applied, the product is assessed for its sensory properties and general application behaviour. Especially when it comes to oils and other liquid, anhydrous systems, it happens that the product itself is too runny, evaporates too quickly or does not remain at the targeted skin area e.g., active loaded facial oils.
