Clear Gel without DEA

Add to favourites
This formula contains no diethanolamine, yet is able to produce a microemulsion gel which exhibits clarity and possesses a manageable set point (80C), using Potassium Hydroxide in place of the DEA. Lower ethoxylates like the BRIJ and CRODAFOS products used here are the emulsifiers of choice for clear gel formulations-since less ethoxylated materials have been shown to cause less irritation. The powerful emulsifying properties and outstanding synergistic action of these esters yield an extremely efficient system in which a 1:1 ratio of emulsifier to oil concentration is achieved-a balance that minimizes irritation potential and optimizes gel formation.
