Beauty Product Dispersants

Our Applecare line was designed to act as a super-charged dispersing aid, offering excellent distribution of color pigments or mineral particulates throughout a formulation. We utilized our understanding of polymeric coating technology to create an effective dispersing agent that offers greater stability, color intensity, and beauty products manufacturing efficiency than any other product on the market. 

Applemol represents a further development in this area, offering a stable dispersing base suitable for many different types of formulations and excellent compatibility with all pigment types.

Beauty Product Rheology Modifiers

We are specialists in polymer technology, and we apply this expertise in helping formulators alter the rheology of a given formulation. This impacts properties such as thickness, reactions when applied to the skin, how the product behaves in the bottle, and how it functions under a variety of conditions. 

We offer a number of different flexible and manufacturing-friendly rheology modifiers:

SENSOGEL™ is primarily for lotions and creams, and haircare applications. Stable in most situations and at most pH levels, it also retains the sensory properties that are highly prized in these products. 

Oleoflex, one of our founding products, was created using a new type of technology that allowed us to gel vegetable oils. This flexible, elastic gel is an ideal complement to hard and brittle wax ingredients in oil-based formulations, offering a soft sensory profile. 

G-GEL™ is our version of a bentonite powder gel used in color cosmetics, designed to create a particular type of shear-thinning rheology that allows for large amounts of color pigments and other particulates to be suspended in the formulation.

Beauty Product Non-Ionic Thickeners

Utilizing our expertise in polymer chemistry, we have developed a cosmetic thickener that can be used in shampoos, personal cleansing products, and any other products containing surfactants. Designed to help cleanse oils and dirt from the skin, non-ionic thickeners are an ideal choice because they help to preserve the viscosity of a formulation even under stress.

Sorbithix is a powerful non-ionic thickener that can work with any type of surfactant-containing formulation, including the sulfate-free cleansing products that are increasingly popular thanks to the “green beauty” movement. Sorbithix is incredibly stable, even in complex formulations such as those containing essential oils and fragrances.

Beauty Product Dispersions

Using a variety of polymeric dispersants and our decades of manufacturing expertise, we offer two pre-made dispersions incorporating zinc oxide and titanium oxide for use in suncare products. 

G-Block is a dispersion designed for clean beauty and natural beauty companies. Comprising 100% clean ingredients approved by COSMOS, Ecocert, and the Natural Product Association, G-Block also offers superior SPF performance and excellent stability. 

S-Block is designed for high-end clinical and dermaceutical brands, offering exceptional performance and a premium sensory profile. Marrying clean beauty with clinically-validated properties, S-Block offers consistent broad spectrum SPF protection.

Innovation Tailor-Made for Beauty Product Manufacturers


Commonly utilized in anti-aging, anti-pollution, and urban defense formulations, Phytocare is a hydrating snow mushroom extract. COSMOS-approved, Phytocare draws on the centuries of history of snow mushroom use in Chinese herbal, cosmetic, and culinary applications. 


Oleoflex, a flexible oil texturizer, is a hybrid material comprising an advanced synthetic polymer blend alongside natural oils. With two lines of OleoFLEX products available, the Elastomer Gel (EG) series and the Flowing Gel (FG) series, these products have numerous applications in formulations from skincare to hair and lip care. 


Primarily used in color cosmetic applications, G-GEL represents bentonite organoclay gels remastered and improved thanks to our experience with polymeric chemistry. This extremely stable gel offers best-in-class versatility and can be used with every kind of oil.
