G-GEL

G-GEL Bentonite Clay Master Gels

G-GEL products represent a dramatic improvement in organically modified hectorite clay.  Traditionally used in cosmetic applications as a primary rheological additive to build thixotropic viscosity, Applechem has made them even easier to use, with great advances made in viscosity efficacy, formulation flexibility, and overall product stability.  This stability (i.e. no syneresis) is a hallmark of Applechem products, and helps ensure that you have consistent viscosity results from one production lot to the next.

  • Extremely stable gel, no separation or syneresis over time
  • Best-in-class versatility, can be used to thicken every class of oil - elimates need for gels in specific carrier oils
  • Greatly improved thickening efficacy, up to 3 times more effective verses traditional bentonite gels

G-GEL Stability verses Standard Bentonite Clay Gels

Figure A shows standard master gels which have poor exfoliation (some organoclay stacks are still stuck together), poor stability, substantial oil separation over time, poor thickening efficacy, and inconsistant product performance.

Figure B shows our G-Gel™ master gels where the organoclay stacks are fully exfoliated, creating consistent stability, reduces oil bleeding or syneresis, dramatically improves thickening effiacy, and enchances sensory properties.
