​​​​​​​​​​​​Viscosity Modifiers​​


Use SYLOID® silicas to achieve the desired consistency, silky texture, mattifying, and soft focus effects in liquid and cream formulations.

Unlike waxes and polymers, SYLOID® silicas can be used to effectively prevent softening under elevated temperature conditions in solid formulations like lipsticks and other cosmetic products. Their viscosity behavior is not affected by pH and ionic strength and/or polyvalent ions. 

They can also be used in products like mascara to prevent smudging and running after application in a warm and humid environment. SYLOID® silicas are also effective in maintaining the integrity and stability of solid anti-perspirant products by preventing seepage of liquid ingredients and melting or softening at elevated temperatures.
