LAPONITE-XL 21 XR is a synthetic layered silicate and has been specially developed to give improved performance in personal care products formulated at 5.5 and lower. It is insoluble in water but hydrates and swells to give clear and colourless colloidal dispersions in water or aqueous solutions of alcohols. At concentrations of 2% or greater in water, highly thixotropic gels are obtained.

The unique shear thinning and thixotropic rheology of LAPONITE-XL 21 XR improves the skin feel of personal care products. Formulations will have a light, non-sticky texture. This product enhances stability of emulsions and keeps particles, pigments, or solid actives suspended. It has been sterilized by gamma irradiation.

Processing Instructions

The recommended laboratory mixing equipment is a mechanical stirrer fitter with a propeller blade.

Add the product to deionized water (at 15 – 25°C) in a steady stream over 10 – 30 seconds with rapid agitation. Mixer speed should be high enough to make a vortex that will cause the stream of LAPONITE powder to wet out into the water without the creation of clumps. Mixing should be continued for up to 20 minutes. When dispersion is complete, this product produces a clear, colourless, and low viscosity pre-mix.

Viscosity development will occur when the pre-mix is combined with other formulation components. The pre-mix can be affected by temperature, electrolytes, or by pH level. Recommended agents are citric acid, lactic acid, or sodium dihydrogen phosphate.
