EMT Polymer is multifunctional and simple to use! This polymer functions by swelling in water and is perfect for light, elegant cold-process creams, lotions, serums and other personal care products. EMT Polymer leaves skin feeling soft and conditioned.
EMT Polymer can be added directly to water to form a gel-like, antiaging anti-aging skin care serum easy as 1, 2, 3 no heating necessary and no neutralization needed. Please see our EMT Skin Rescue Serum
EMT Polymer can be used as the only emulsifier and thickener to make light, cold process lotions or creams1% - 2%. Please see our EMT Summer Silk Lotion
EMT Polymer can be added to the heated oil phase for hot process emulsions such as our EMT Cream.
It can also be used with other emulsifiers to create stability and build viscosity 0.5% - 2%.
EMT Polymer is compatible with triglycerides, silicones, emollient esters, and fragrance and essential oils. EMT Polymer is anionic and is not compatible with cationics. EMT Polymer used at 2%-5% can emulsify up to 25% lipids. EMT Polymer offers excellent emulsification and stability for skin care serums, creams and lotions at a very low usage rate.
EMT Polymer is simple and easy to use and enables the formulation of gel-like serums that are a snap to make! It also easily creates cold-process creams and lotions with the addition of oils and butters. It offers thickening capability over a wide pH range (3 to 10) making it useful for thickening both low and high pH systems. It is also compatible with ethanol-containing formulations and those containing AHAs and DHA.
EMT Polymer is a pre-neutralized powder, dispersible in the oil or water phase in cold or hot process formulations. This powder is easy to use and will not clump. It requires no neutralization. It is able to emulsify and stabilize formulations with up to 50% oil phase. It can also be used with other emulsifiers to improve stability and build viscosity. It is compatible with silicones, mineral oil, emollient esters like fractionated coconut oil and other natural oils and butters. It is an anionic emulsifier, so it is not compatible with cationic ingredients.
