OptaSense™ G40 

INCI Name:




OptaSense™ G40 is a polyacrylic rheology modifier (thickener) which provides an effective yet economic route to crystal clear aqueous and aqueous alcoholic gel systems. Gels formed by OptaSense™ G40 are non-tacky, easy to rub in and display a high degree of substantivity to the skin and hair; and therefore resist slide (particularly important in shave gels and face masks). This product is ideal for use in a wide variety of cosmetic gels, suspensions, creams, and lotions.
