NS MGel 1199

NS MGel 1199 is a thickening self-emulsifying gel for making very stable W/O emulsions with the addition of additional thickeners/structurants or emulsifiers and is ideal for creating very creamy long wearing water-proof mascaras and eyeshadows without increase in product viscosity over time. It controls the viscosity build-up of W/O mascaras with relatively high wax phases by controlling crystallization rate of waxes, resulting in thickening mascaras without the hardening that usually occurs over time.
