Coatex benefits of Arkema group policy with a performance and progress in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development recognized by several extra-financial rating agencies.
Rheostyl™ rheology modifiers for next generation cleansing formula
Today’s body and facial wash as well as shampoo provides must go beyond cleansing, they must be visually attractive with transparency, color, particles or glitters and provides beauty benefits to skin and hair.
Rheostyl™ 85 L: focus on clarity at low pH
- is compatible with all type of surfactants, standard or sulphate-free,
- is globally approved and very easy to formulate with a single-step neutralization process allowing a reduction of the manufacturing time & cost,
- is recommended for body wash with natural preservatives, facial cleansers with salicylic, feminine hygiene & shampoos.
Rheostyl™ 90 N: a unique rheological signature for surprising textures
Rheostyl™ 90 N combines a very high thickening efficiency with unique crystal clear appearance. Rheostyl™ 90 N has unique rheological signature with shape memory properties. It is recommended to develop innovative and surprising textures.
Rheostyl™ 100: versatility all along the pH range with superior suspension power
Rheostyl™ 100 is a rheology modifier highly efficient to thicken and suspend particles in cleansing products all over the pH range (3 to 12). It is compatible with all type of surfactant and soap-based formulas. Rheostyl™ 100 provides elegant texture with smooth flow and high clarity from neutral pH to alkaline pH. Rheostyl™ 100 is a low viscosity aqueous liquid emulsion easily incorporated in any type of formulations.
Rheostyl™ rheology modifiers for skin care, sun care and color cosmetics
The quest for unique and innovative textures is a permanent driver for formulators. Fuelled by their passion for innovation and their strong know-how in rheology, Coatex researchers have developed a line of rheology modifiers and a line of polymeric emulsifiers that open a new area of creativity.
Rheostyl™ E polymeric emulsifier, creating emulsions become a piece of cake!
- Powerful emulsification, smooth texture & unique sensorial
- Flexibility of formulation, easy process and water resistance
Rheostyl™ E are liquid polymers that can be processed in cold conditions at low shear rate with a standard blade. All kind of oils can be emulsified with no limit in oil loading. A wide palette of textures & sensorial can be created with Rheostyl™ E-Light and Rheostyl™ E-Cream.
Rheostyl™ E-Light is a multifunctional polymeric emulsifier dedicated to formulate thin and sprayable emulsions with a light and fresh feel. The polymeric nature of Rheostyl™ E-light allows to develop ‘emulsifier-free’ formulations recommended.
Rheostyl™ E-Cream is a multifunctional polymeric emulsifier dedicated to formulate fluid to thick emulsions that can be sprayable. Thanks to its excellent resistance to electrolytes it create formulations with a rich and cushion sensorial.
The polymeric nature of Rheostyl™ E-Cream allows to develop ‘emulsifier-free’ formulations recommended for sensitive skin and provides a very good water resistance to the formulations with a comfortable afterfeel.
