ANTIL® 500 Pellets – A versatile rheology modifier with outstanding thickening properties
Evonik introduces ANTIL® 500 Pellets, a novel and versatile rheology modifier for various cleansing formulations.
As an innovative hydrophilic polymer, ANTIL® 500 Pellets enables a significant reduction of the active surfactant level in standard cleansing formulations. In addition, the extraordinary efficiency and high flexibility of ANTIL® 500 Pellets facilitate the thickening of challenging surfactant systems, such as sulfate-free formulas, effectively supporting the trend for milder cleansing in personal care.
The 100% active, preservative-free solid is clearly soluble in water and processable at room temperature. Furthermore, ANTIL® 500 Pellets is stable against hydrolysis and effective over a wide pH range. The thickening agent provides a rich formulation texture with Newtonian flow behavior but without changing the foaming characteristics, which is essential for fulfilling the consumers’ sensorial expectations of personal cleansing products.
ANTIL® 500 Pellets is your innovative choice for the development of mild and cost-effective surfactant-based skin and hair care formulations.
