- Proven track record with gelled baby oil
Visually appealing, odorless, and do not discolor with age. They are easier and safer to handle and formulate than gels that use metal stearates or fumed silica. They provide fragrance retention in skin care products and furnish waterproofing properties to sunscreen products. Furthermore, Versagel MC grades are hydrophobic, thermally reversible, and without syneresis (oil bleed).
Versagel® MC is available in viscosity grades:
- Versagel MC 750
- Versagel MC 1600
