Jeen Launches Line of Thickeners for Cosmetics

Jeen International Corp. has launched a line of thickeners for personal care products. Jeethix provides both thickening and stabilization benefits to a wide range of formulations. Composed of four initial products, the Jeethix series includes acrylamide, acrylate and taurate copolymer technologies.

The flagship product, Jeethix 305 (INCI: Polyacrylamide (and) C13-14 Isoparaffin (and) Laureth-7) is a polyacrylamide-based liquid designed for aqueous formulations. Pseudoplastic and non-thixotropic, use of Jeethix 305 results in reduced formulation viscosity with shear stress and instantly returns to initial viscosity upon standing. Jeethix 305 can be used at a wide pH range of 2-11 and exhibits excellent high temperature stability.

Jeethix T (INCI: Sodium Acrylate (and) Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer) is a copolymer that requires no neutralization and swells quickly in water to provide thickening across a wide pH range.

Jeethix 980 (INCI: Carbomer) along with Jeethix SP (INCI: Sodium Polyacrylate) round out the initially launched products. Both are based on acrylate technology and provide thickening and stabilization attributes in a wide range of formulations.
