Cocobomer Ultra Clear Carbomer
Ideal ingredient to create an ultra clear serum or gel. the difference between this ingredient and any other carbomer (Carbopol) is the high clarity result obtained by C0cobomer.
Cocobomer is made by an advanced technology to create an ultra clear carbomer. It is a synthetic polymer, benzene free, well known and widely used in the cosmetic industry as thickener and suspending agent thanks to its safety and versatility. Cocobomer dispersion are characterized by high viscosity and a very high clarity. Therefore it is very suitable for formulating sparkling and clear gels as well as for stabilizing emulsions.
Very clear gels can be obtained in the presence of high amounts of natural solvents too (e.g. ethanol), if the appropriate neutralizing agent is chosen. Normal percentage of use is between 0.1 and 1.5% depending on type of formulation and final desired viscosity.
Chemical name: Carboxyvinyl polymer
Appearance: Fine white powder
PH: (0.5% water dispersion) 2.7-3.5
Clarity: (0.5% dispersion, T% at 425 nm) ? 97
Recommended Usage: 1% – 10%
Solubility: Dispersal in Water.
Use: Personal care products.
Applications: In order to avoid the formation of lumps and stirring until all particles are completely hydrated. Turbulent agitation should be avoided to prevent trapping of air which would be difficult to remove from the finished product.
During the preparation of emulsions, Cocobomer can be dispersed also in the oil phase obtaining free flowing dispersion with concentration up to 30% The neutralization can be carried out with innatural bases (such as NaOH, KOH, NH4OH) or with natural amines (such as TEA, AMP, AMPD).
Tips: Add Cocobomer to water and leave it for few hours for complete hydrate before adding other ingredients. UV rays can cause loss of viscosity in Cocobomer gels. The addition of water-soluble UV-absorbers, such as Benzophenone-4, can help for preventing polymer degradation.
