NS MGel 1162

(Patent Pending)

NS MGel 1162 is a Bentonite/Silicone Elastomer based thickening, self-emulsifying gel in volatile Isododecane. It is ideal for making very stable W/O emulsions, without the use of additional thickeners/structurants or emulsifiers at room temperature or elevated temperature. Emulsions made with MGel 1162 do not have the processing and scale-up challenges that are a part of formulating most W/O emulsions. With the use of NS MGel 1162, formulators can achieve consistent viscosity at elevated, temperature as well as F/T and RT.

Features & Benefits

  • VMakes stable W/O emulsions at room temperature

  • Makes W/O emulsions without the addition of emulsifiers or thickeners

  • Enhances wear

  • Stabilizes oil phases against syneresis

  • Consistent viscosity over time

  • Viscosity is relatively constant at 45°C, 50°C and F/T

  • Worldwide approved


  • W/O Foundations

  • High SPF water-proof creams and lotions

  • High internal phase emulsions (HIPE)

  • Low internal phase emulsions (LIPE)

  • Ideal for making long-wearing foundations

  • BB and CC creams

Use Level

  • 13 – 20 %

Formulation Tips

  • Disperse in oil phase using a homogenizer or high shear mixer to totally disperse for maximum benefit. Add water phase slowly with high shear homogenization for 4-5 minutes until all the water is added. Do not add any additional thickeners, waxes or emulsifiers. Ideally suited for room temperature emulsions
