Crothix Pastilles for Thickening

INCI: PEG 150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate

Crothix Pastilles offer an efficient, easy way to thicken shampoo, body wash and other surfactant based formulations. Crothix is easty to use and used at low percentages.

Crothix is typically premixed in with the liquid surfactant or surfactant blend. and gently heated to 80-85C/176-185F ( must melt completely and blend to be effective.) To work best Crothix is blended in with a non ionic. To perform optimally, add some Polysorbate 80 (we carry it) , a nonionic emulsifier to the blend, in a ration of 2:5 - crothix /nonionic emulsifier. Once the crothix is melted in with the surfactant system and blended well, the mixture can then be added to the oil phase. Must melt completely to be effective.

Best used within the pH range of 5.0 to 9.0
