INCI Name:

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (and) Stearalkonium Hectorite (and) Propylene Carbonate

BENTONE GEL® GTCC V is a specially prepared dispersion of a non-animal origin organically modified hectorite in Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride. This grade is designed to impart rheological control and suspension to organic- and silicone-based cosmetics. BENTONE GEL® GTCC V is also particularly useful in emulsions and can be used in "cold process" systems. It provides thermostable viscosity control of the emulsion's oil phase, improves application properties, enhances skin-feel by masking greasy or tacky components and imparts a pleasant residual silkiness to the skin. BENTONE GEL® GTCC V is an alternative to traditional polymer or cellulose-based thickeners for stabilizing emulsions.



Elementis Specialties is a leading global supplier of high value functional additives and natural hectorite clay to the Personal Care industry. Elementis Specialties also manufactures natural, bio-functional and active ingredients for hair and skin care and anti-aging formulas. Other high quality products are based on natural Meadowfoam oil, Abyssinian oil, Lanolin, and Lanolin derivatives.
