Anti-Caking Agents are essential in preventing the aggregation of particulate ingredients, ensuring smooth and uniform textures in powdered personal care formulations. They are particularly crucial in products like talcum powders, mineral-based makeup, and powdered sunscreens, enhancing product flowability and preventing clumping for a superior consumer experience.

Emulsifiers play a pivotal role in creating harmonious mixtures of oil and water phases, key to developing stable, homogeneous emulsions in creams, lotions, and sunscreen formulations. By carefully selecting the right emulsifiers, formulators can achieve desired product consistency, ensuring long-term stability and enhancing skin feel and moisturisation properties.

Opacifiers are used to reduce the transparency and increase the opacity of personal care products, contributing to the aesthetic and sensory attributes of formulations such as lotions, creams, and hair care products. They are essential for achieving a luxurious, creamy appearance in products, making them more appealing to consumers.

Rheology Modifiers
