SYNTHALEN® CH is a synthetic polymer, benzene free, well known and widely used in the cosmetic industry as thickener and suspending agent thanks to its safety and versatility. SYNTHALEN® CH dispersions are characterized by high viscosity and a very high clarity. Therefore it is very suitable for formulating sparkling and clear gels as well as for stabilizing emulsions. Very clear gels can be obtained in the presence of high amounts of organic solvents too (e.g. ethanol), if the appropriate neutralizing agent is chosen. Normal percentage of use is between 0.1 and 1.5% depending on type of formulation and final desired viscosity.
