Since the early 1980s, nonaqueous emulsions have attracted technical interest as potential vehicles and delivery systems for personal care products. This is due to the development of a broad range of silicone-based emulsifiers, silicone polymers and other polymeric emulsifiers that have enabled their use. This article will briefly review their history and evolution into current-day specialized applications.
Consumer demand for products that provide anti-aging and healthy-skin benefits is driving the creation of many new cosmetics. However, many of the active ingredients that are beneficial to the face and neck are most effective at lower pH ranges. In this Q&A, Lubrizol’s Bryan Moran, Sr. R&D Scientist, talks about Carbopol® Ultrez 30 polymer (INCI: Carbomer), a new rheology modifier, and how it can help formulators achieve preferred viscosity, suspension and stability in gels or emulsions containing challenging additives such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs).
Lubrizol has added a new rheology modifier to its Carbopol range that offers electrolyte tolerance, high thickening performance in a broad pH range and rich, distinct sensory attributes in challenging skin care formulations.
