This Calming After Shave Balm with AEROSIL® R 816 is an o/w Pickering emulsion featuring AEROSIL® R 816 for particle-stabilized emulsions.
AEROSIL® R 816 is a fumed silica powder that offers an alternative technology to stabilize oil/water emulsions. Due to the special surface modification of the silica both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties are introduced in just one material. This enables AEROSIL® R 816 to enrich at oil/water interfaces and thereby stabilize oil droplets in a continuous water phase by the Pickering effect.
