LAPONITE - Water phase

Synthetic hydrophilic layered silicates

Product Description
LAPONITE products are synthetic layered silicates with low heavy metal content. 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.
