ChemThix DOE Thickener 7 Lb
An easy to use thickener ChemThix DOE is a high active non-ionic liquid thickener for surfactants and surfactant systems, when you need to increase viscosity / thickness. It is especially useful thickening surfactant systems that may be difficult to thicken, when they are not sulfates that typically can be thickened with sodium chloride (salt), like sulfate free surfactants for example.
It can be used as an emollient, irritation reducer, in all kinds of hair and skin care products, like cleansers, shampoo, and shower gels body washes etc..Typical Uses for ChemThix DOE:
Thickens non ionic surfactants and many sulfate free surfactants where salt is not / can not be used.Does not need pH change/ Neutralization, use of TEA, to thickenCan be used without heat, in cold processes Can be used to make clear products. Has some benefits as an anti-irritant. Has good feel, moisturization, acts an emollient, when used to make cleansing products
Used inSkin care and hair care products. Facial and Body cleansers, even exfoliating productsHair care products, including shampoos and 2-in-1 conditioning shampoos
ChemThix DOE is easy to use. Typically ChemThix DOE is the last, final step in a formulation, when you need to thicken a product. Add it in at small increments, as little as 0.50 (1/2 percent by weight), then thoroughly blend and check viscosity. If it is not at the desired thickness, add more, in the same amount as before, and mix and check again. If you want to make the ChemThix a little easier to use, try gently heating it to thin it out just a little. Try heating it in a double boiler, or even under a hot bath in the sink or a bowl. *Some common products that thin out your surfactants/ surfactant blends - Essential oils, Fragrance oils, preservatives. If after adding any of these you do not have the desired thickness in your products - that is a good time to use ChemThix DOE.
