Clearthix S – a versatile, transparent thickener
The optimised mixture of algin and cellulose gum lends Clearthix S its unique rheological profile. The new thickener combination forms transparent, non-sticky solutions in the water phase, and can be used at room temperature as a viscosity modifier or gelling agent. When Clearthix S is mixed with small amounts of hyaluronic acid, its flow behaviour resembles the rheology of carbomers. This property can be an advantage when developing transparent face and body gels.
With decent pH, heat and electrolyte stability, the thickener requires no neutralisation and is easily dispersed in water.
