Glucamate® LT offers superior thickening for surfactant-based systems such as such as shampoo, shower gel, and and other cleansers. Glucamate LT is based on a stabilized methyl glucoside backbone and is derived from natural and renewable resources.
The natural, oleate chemistry of Glucamate LT contributes to its luxurious sensory properties and a light, emollient afterfeel. The three-dimensional structure of Glucamate® LT thickener interacts with surfactants to form a complex network that actually contains less water and â€œbreaksâ€ easily during rub in. This phenomenon improves the feel of shampoo, body wash, shower gel, facial cleansers, and other liquid cleansers.
Glucamate® LT is a liquid product which can easily be cold processed - meaning that no heat or additional energy is required to dissolve the material or create the association required for thickening.
Glucamate® LT can be used as the only thickener or for synergistic thickening with products such as MaizeThix or GuarSilk. For enhanced performance, Glucamate® LT thickener can be heated to 70ÂºC. Glucamate LT is compatible with anionic, nonionic, and amphoteric surfactants and is very easy to use. It is best used in a pH range between 5.0 and 9.0.
