Makeit EasyGel – Emulsifying blend for making gels and emulsions
Makeit EasyGel is a liquid polymer produced by inverse emulsion polymerization. This is a solvent-free, energy efficient manufacturing process technology. Makeit EasyGel offers a perfect balance between softness and lightness for all types of application and climate. Makeit EasyGel can be used as a thickener or as a sole emulsifier: in this case it can be added both to the water phase or the oily phase but phase B seems to be the best option as the polymer is lipodispersible and therefore inversion and swelling are facilitated.
Makeit EasyGel is supposed to be able to hold up to 40% oils in the formula and another great feature is that it can hold up very well silicone-based powders
Ideal pH range is pH 5.5 – pH 10.
CAS NO: 77019-71-7, 4390-04-9, 9005-65-6
Sodium acrylate / sodium Acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer & isohexadecane & polysorbate 80
Excellent thickener by forming gels over a wide ph range (4-12), emulsifies all kinds of oily phases (up to 40%) incl. silicones & vegetable oils without the addition of a conventional emulsifier, able to produce cold emulsions, stabilizes emulsions & maintains the viscosity of a formula, gives light & pleasant texture to spread on skin.
Emulsions: 0.5-2%. Can be added into fat or water phase, or at the end of emulsification. Needs good mixing with hand mixer to get smooth creams. Gel creams: 1-5%. When using over 3% use at least 12% oils for best performance. For external use only.
Gel-creams, emulsion-gels, cold emulsions, lotions, creams, skin-whitening /self-tanning products, sun care & baby care products, mascara, foundations.
Appearance: Viscous fluid
Solubility: Soluble in oil
Color: White to light yellow
Effective pH range: 5.5 – 11
