Casid® HSA is an efficient, thixotropic viscosity builder that will gel hydrocarbons, many esters, and certain silicones. Additionally, formulators may make salts of Casid® HSA in situ (e.g. Triethanolamine) for use as primary oil-in-water emulsifiers. The product finds applications in anhydrous, pigmented lip gels, antiperspirants, cosmetic pencils, hair styling waxes, creams, and lotions.

Features & Benefits:
  • Vegetable based
  • Gels hydrocarbons, many esters and certain silicones.
