PEG150-Distarate is an effective thickener for surfactant-containing products (e.g. shampoo, conditioner, shower gels),acts as solubiliser for various water-insoluble ingredients, and offers good co-emulsifying properties in creams & lotions.

PEG esters are compatible with many amphoteric, anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants, allowing for their use as both primary and secondary emulsifiers. PEG esters are practically non-toxic and are non-irritating to eyes and skin.

Application areas:

1. Hair Care

Is used as a thickening agent and foam booster in shampoos and conditioners. Also used as a thickening agent in styling products such as hair gels, and is a preferred thickener in these systems due to itís wide range of compatibility.

2. Emulsion Systems

here it is used as an auxiliary emulsifier and viscosity builder for both O/W and W/O emulsions. Its low usage rate, range of compatibility, and relatively low cost makes it an excellent choice for formulations

3. Gels and Serums

PEG150-Distearate can be hot or cold processed (24 hours hydration time), making this thickener a versatile, powerful ingredient for the formulation of gels and serums in skin care. Because it is non-irritating and practically non-toxic, its an execllent choice for facial products as well as for formulating cosmeceuticals. It ís nonionic character wont interfere with cationic actives. Because PEG150-Distearate will further thicken in the presence of salts, formulators can adjust viscosity at the end phase using either a Sodium Chloride solution or an electrolyte (such as Aloe Vera)
