NS MGel 1152 (Patent Pending)

NS MGel 1152 is a Hectorite based thickening, self-emulsifying gel in volatile Isododecane. It is ideal for making very stable W/O emulsions, without the use of additional thickeners/structurants or emulsifiers at room temperature or elevated temperature. Emulsions made with MGel 1152 do not have the processing and scale-up challenges that are a part of formulating most W/O emulsions. With the use of NS MGel 1152, formulators can achieve consistent viscosity at elevated, temperature as well as F/T and RT.

Features & Benefits
Makes stable W/O emulsions at room temperature
Makes W/O emulsions without the addition of emulsifiers or thickeners
Enhances wear
Stabilizes oil phases against syneresis
Consistent viscosity over time
Viscosity is relatively constant at 45°C, 50°C and F/T
Worldwide approved

W/O Foundations
High SPF water-proof creams and lotions
High internal phase emulsions (HIPE)
Low internal phase emulsions (LIPE)
Ideal for making long-wearing foundations
BB and CC creams

Use Level
• 10 – 30 %

Formulation Tips
• Disperse in oil phase using a homogenizer or high shear mixer to totally disperse for maximum benefit. Add water phase slowly with high shear homogenization for 4-5 minutes after all the water is added. Do not add any additional thickeners, waxes or emulsifiers. Ideally suited for room temperature emulsions

INCI: Isododecane (and) Disteardimonium Hectorite (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate (and) Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone (and) Propylene Carbonate
