Stabilizer for skin care formulations for a smooth and velvety after feel
Rheozan® SH, natural polymer delivering rheology modification with excellent sensory benefits
Rheomer® SH is a natural rheology modifier, certified 100% natural, that provides a smooth and velvety after feel to skin care formulation and helps eliminate tackiness, while providing excellent stabilization of formulations containing acidic actives and electrolytes.
How does it work?
Rheozan® SH contain Succinoglycan molecule. Succinoglycan modifies a liquid’s rheology and it offers the combined advantages of giving personal care products a pleasant texture and being made from a 100% natural resource.
Is there any alternative?
The main comparable competitor on the market for Rheozan® SH (leaving aside its synthetic equivalents) is Xanthan Gum, a very widely used thickening agent. But succinoglycan actually offers superior properties.
Efficient in 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 presence of electrolytes
Rheozan® SH exhibits an excellent electrolyte tolerance. Rheozan® SH builds viscosity better in the presence of high salt levels, with excellent long-term stability.
