They are insoluble in water but hydrate and swell to give clear and colorless colloidal dispersions in water or aqueous solutions of alcohols. At concentrations of 2 % or higher in water, highly thixotropic gels are obtained. The unique shear thinning and thixotropic rheology of LAPONITE products improve the skin feel of personal care products. Formulations will have a light, non-sticky texture. LAPONITE products enhance stability of formulations and keep particles, pigments or solid actives suspended. Product Description GELWHITE and OPTIGEL products are activated bentonite products. They are used as a thixotropic agent in water-based systems with excellent anti-settling and stabilizing properties. + high | o medium | - no *Certified according to the natural and organic standards of ECOCERT. **XR products are sterilized by gamma-irradiation. + high | o medium | - no *XR products are sterilized by gamma-irradiation. 6 BYK BYK 7
