Bentone Hydroclay™ 550

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Elementis
Magnesium Aluminum Silicate. Bentone Hydroclay™ 550 by Elementis is non-animal origin rheological additive for aqueous cosmetics and toiletries. It is a highly beneficiated, easily dispersible powdered smectite clay. This non-abrasive ingredient imparts thixotropic viscosity and good suspension control to the water phase of cosmetics. It is easily processed as a powder or pre-gel. It increases the viscosity of the aqueous phase and stabilizes viscosity on aging, at varying temperatures and under different shear conditions. It imparts smooth silky feel and thermostable thixotropy/ pseudoplasticity. Also, provides dependable suspension control. It reduces phase separation and syneresis. Bentone Hydroclay™ 550 is used in oil in water emulsions, creams, lotions, antiperspirants & deodorants, color cosmetics, face packs, facial make-up and sun- & hair care products. It is approved by Ecocert Greenlife in accordance with the COSMOS standard. The shelf life of this product is 4 years.
