The Versagel SF product offers a silicone-free alternative for haircare with flexibility to suit a formulator’s unique needs. In addition to haircare, it also provides a smooth feel as well as versatility across multiple cosmetic and personal care applications. The gelled structure is based on Isoparaffin combined with patented block copolymer technology. The gellant system for the SF product is comprised of proprietary synthetic polymers which allow the gels to be clear, stable, thermally reversible and is BHT free. The Versagel SF gels are compatible with silicones, most non-ionic surfactants and other synthetic and natural emollients.
Studies on the Versagel SF technology have shown that these gelled products improve key properties such as slip, shine and smoothness compared to commercial benchmarks.
Test results indicate that the prototype formulation using Versagel SF allows for formulation versatility in various attributes such as shine, rheology and lubricity. Based on formulator’s performance goals for a haircare product, formulation can be adjusted to optimize key attributes.
