Non-animal Origin Rheological Additive For Cosmetics And Toiletries

THIXCIN  R  PC  is  a  non-hygroscopic  derivative  of
castor  oil  that  imparts  a  high  degree  of  thixotropic thickening  in  cosmetics  mineral,  vegetable  and silicones  oils,  as  well  as  low-polarity  aliphatic solvents.
THIXCIN  R  PC  provides  thixotropy  and  imparts
good  pay-off  in  stick  products;  improves  product stability when used in the oil phase of emulsions; and can  be  used  as  a  binder  in  pressed  powder formulations.

Use Levels

Typical addition levels are 0.2 to 0.8 % THIXCIN R PC by weight of the system (or oil phase in emulsions), depending upon the rheological properties required.
In pressed powders, tablets and granules 0.5 to 2.0 % should provide adequate binding.
