TEGO® Care 450 MB
INCI: Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose DistearateProduct Category: Emulsifier
TEGO® Care 450 MB is a versatile PEG-free emulsifier based on vegetable raw materials and suitable for cosmetic oil-in-water emulsions with an outstanding stability profile. TEGO® Care 450 MB shows high compatibility with actives, significant amounts of electrolytes, and critical ingredients. It forms stable emulsions with all common oils and fats used for skin care products, including polar oils. Thus, it gives the possibility to adjust the application properties of the emulsion by the choice of the oils: the better the spreading properties and the lower the viscosities of the oils are, the “lighter” the resulting emulsions are. The application properties may also be adjusted by caring the quantity of the oil phase.
This product can be either be used in combination with polyacrylate-based rheology additives such as Carbomer Homopolymer A or B or with natural polymeric thickeners like xanthan gum, gellan gum, or carrageenan. The best way to adjust the viscosity is to change the dosage of the rheology additive. Depending on the desired formulation texture, concentrations of 0.1 to 0.5 % are typically used.
