MaizeThix

Qty:  
MaizeThix is a natural, cornstarch based thickener for shampoo, body wash, facial cleansers and other surfactant based systems. MaizeThix works exceptionally well to build viscosity in difficult to thicken surfactant systems and out performs all other starch or cellulose gum thickeners. MaizeThix functions well in neutral to mildly acidic systems and is tolerant of low pH and salt. MaizeThix imparts a silky feel in rinse-off and will not compromise foam. MaizeThix is easy to disperse in room temperature water and will not develop "fish eyes".

Formulating Guidelines:
MaizeThix is easily dispersed into room temperature water. Gently stir until MaizeThix is completely incorporated and hydrated. When incorporated and hydrated (allow 15-20 minutes for hydrating) at the recommended percentages, MaizeThix will typically form a very, thick paste-like consistency. For cold-process formulas, the liquid surfactant should be directly added to the hydrated MaizeThix and gently stirred until incorporated. As additional ingredients are added to the formula, MaizeThix will loose its paste-like consistency and develop a lovely rheology and consistency. Reducing the pH of the finished shampoo may increase viscosity. Essential oils, fragrance oils and other ingredients may have an effect on the viscosity of the finished formula.

MaizeThix can be used as the only thickener or in combination with other thickeners. When used as the only thickener in shampoo or body wash, we typically recommend using 5.0%-7.0%. MaizeThix is nonionic and is compatible with most other gums and starches such as GuarSilk. MaizeThix and GuarSilk offer synergistic thickening and conditioning. We suggest 5.0% MaizeThix and 0.2% GuarSilk for a light, conditioning formula. Please see our formulary for sample formulas:
