Versagel M products are based on gelling USP grade white mineral oil in such a way as it promotes superior moisture retention by creating a continuous film enabling oil to be easily spread with no pooling of the product. Versagel® M products also provide a low-moisture system for the protection of water-sensitive additive packages/ingredients. In liquid systems, fine particles do not easily remain in suspension; they tend to settle at the bottom and agglomerate. As shown below in the suspension stability testing, Versagel provides excellent suspension properties because the polymers provide sufficient yield stress to prevent aggregation and settling.
Penreco’s Versagel Technology is used in a wide range of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and personal care products all over the world. The patented system for thickening and gelling hydrocarbon materials offers an infinite number of customized rheological properties.
