Versagel® M: Patented hydrocarbon gels that promote improved skin occlusivity and TEWL. The products enhance moisturization, has excellent suspension ability, had custom rheology or flow capability, and is thermally stable and way to use. Versagel M comes in four viscosity grades:
- Versagel M 200
- Versagel M 500
- Versagel M 750
- Versagel M 1600
Clinical studies with gelled mineral oil have shown that moisturization that is measured by TEWL improves 53% even though the gel contains > 90% mineral oil. The polymers are forming a film, preventing moisture loss.
The unparalleled suspension and stability capabilities of the Versagel M Lines demonstrates well-dispersed particles with no settling, agglomeration, or re-agglomeration, maintaining even properties throughout. High solids are achievable (50+ wt%) and can be formulated without surfactants to reduce skin irritation. Demonstrations can be seen below using the Versagel M 200 with the following conditions:
Ambient temp (25 °C, 6 months)
Accelerated aging (52 °C, 6 weeks)
Freeze-thaw cycles (-20 °C to 25 °C)
