Emulsion Stabilising, Film Forming, Viscosity Controlling
an emulsifier for oilin-water emulsions. It has thickening and formula-stabilizing properties, similar to a carbomer, but with better waterproofing capabilities. It permits a formulation’s oil phase component to be released immediately upon rubbing the product into the skin. It is used in moisturizer emulsions and creams, waterproof sunscreens, and fragrance emulsions. See also carbomer.
