CLAYTONE-VP V XR
INCI: Quaternium-90 BentoniteProduct Categories: Suspending Agent, Thickener
CLAYTONE-VP V XR is an organically modified bentonite (organoclay) for use in cosmetic and personal care products. It increases viscosity, provides thixotropic flow behaviour, and suspends pigments and particles. It is designed to impart a high degree of gelling efficiency over a wide range of low to medium polar fluids. This product may be used as an auxiliary emulsifier in water-in-oil emulsion systems.
CLAYTONE-VP V XR is vegan and sterilized by gamma irradiation. It may be used in non-polar to medium polar organic fluid systems.
Suitable solvents include: Mineral Oil, Silicone Oil, Vegetable Oil

This product is effective in a wide range of organic fluid systems and has no processing temperature requirements. For maximum efficiency, this product requires a polar activator and very high shear, e.g. dissolver, rotor-stator system, or homogenizer.
It is recommended to incorporate CLAYTONE-VP V XR into the solvent phase using a concentrated pre-gel. This is the preferred option for nail lacquers in order to obtain an ultra-high gloss. In some cases, it can also be incorporated directly as a powder into the oil phase (in-situ incorporation).
