- OleoFLEX EG 200
- OleoFLEX FG 100
OleoFLEX is a hybrid material comprised of natural oils and an advanced synthetic polymer blend. The result is a flexible, anhydrous structurant that has many unique applications in personal care and color cosmetic formulations. There are two series of OleoFLEX products – the Elastic Gel (EG) series, and the Flowing Gel (FG) series.
The EG 200 series structures oils by creating a three-dimensional micro-sponge polymer network, resulting in a thermal-reversible, viscoelastic gel texture. It is generally used in skin care, color cosmetics and stick applications that require a more flexible substantiation of natural oils along with a more soft and cushioned sensory profile. From bouncy bubblegum blushes to cushioned, squeezable sugar scrubs, OleoFLEX EG 200 opens up the playbook for creating formulations with exciting new textures and sensorial experiences.
The FG series, on the other hand, boasts a two-dimensional micro-sponge structure, creating a honey-like flowable gel. This product is very popular in lip care and hair care, where formulators are looking to increase the deposition and wear resistance of natural oils without affecting other formulation parameters. In hair care applications, OleoFLEX FG 100 helps boost conditioning and cuticle repair by keeping those expensive natural oils and oil-soluble actives from washing down the drain.
