The right multi-functional ingredient to formulate minimalist solutions
How does it work?

Efficient in the presence of acidic actives
Rheozan® SH exhibits excellent thickening and stabilizing properties in the presence of acidic actives. Contrary to expectations, the viscosity build of Rheozan® SH increases with higher levels of acidic actives.
Efficient in the presence of electrolytes
