Oilkemia™ 5S polymer is a multifunctional oil-soluble rheology modifier designed to impart thickening with clarity and suspension in a broad spectrum of oils and oil mixtures such as vegetable-based oils, triglycerides, esters, and organic UV filters. It is 30% solids in Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides

It allows the development of a wide variety of textures from thin non-dripping systems to lotions or thick creams, and even solid stick. In anhydrous and emulsion systems, Oilkemia™ 5S polymer can improve the sensory experience by reducing the greasy after-feel of the oils. This rheology modifier is very efficient in medium and high polarity systems, with an average use level of 1.0-6.0 wt% as-supplied for low to high viscosity oil gels.

Features & Benefits:
  • Builds formulations that have exceptional suspension power, enabling striking visuals
  • Enhances TIO2 pigment distribution in emulsions, resulting in pleasant aesthetics and high coverage efficiency
  • Ethylene Oxide-free
  • Excellent stability at high viscosity
  • Gels produced with this polymer have excellent clarity
  • Helps to suspend and stabilize beads, microcapsules, and exfoliants for excellent product stability and visual appeal
  • Improves formulation aesthetics by offering enhanced flow properties to allow the use of consumer-preferred packaging
  • Provides clarity and a high suspending ability in hair gels
  • Reduces level of emulsifiers and structurants required for optimum stability and texture
  • Shear-thinning rheology for smooth flow in hair and skin products
  • Short flow rheology characteristics
