This paper describes the correlation between the structure of liquid crystalline phases in emulsions and their rheological characteristics. An oleosome/lipophilic liquid crystalline-forming system and hydrosome/hydrophilic liquid crystalline-forming system were investigated. At the same high shear rate viscosity, the oleosome-system showed less thixotropy and rapid recovery when compared with the hydrosome-system.

Silicone compounds resemble organic compounds in their ability to make derivatives, but they are fundamentally different because they are equilibrium products. The nature of the equilibrium and the composition of the equilibrium mixture are the key factors. This is important because cyclic compounds are undesirable in personal care products.

In the presented study, researchers suggest that acrylates/aminoacrylates/C10-30 alkyl PEG-20 itaconate copolymer serves to stabilize hydroxypropyl starch phosphate polymer in surfactant systems, and also enables hydroxypropyl starch phosphate polymer to further build viscosity.

A new polysaccharide, produced by fermentation of a Rhizobium sp. strain, is introduced as a typical example of how technology can create new properties and new applications from a “basic” natural ingredient.

Hydrophobically modified, water-soluble polyelectrolytes based on acrylamidopropane sulphonic acid (AMP-S) are new polymers whose use as rheology modifiers in cosmetic formulations and as emulsifiers in surfactant-free cream gels is described here.
