How do I use Sucragel® as an emulsifier?
Sucragel® gel self emulsify in water therefore the best way to make emulsions with Sucragel is to form a gel with your oil phase. Then dilute to the required concentration with water or stabilised water.
Can I use Sucragel® as a general emulsifier in the oil or water phase?
You can, although you get a finer texture and more stable emulsion if you make the product via the gel intermediate.
What can I use to stabilise my sprayable emulsion?
Any type of suspending thickener is suitable, Sucrathix VX is ideal for this.
Do I need to use heat to make an emulsion?
If you are using purely liquid and cold water dispersible ingredients you do not need to heat the mix.
It is not necessary to add Sucrablend® SP V2 to your product unless you are storing the gel.
Can I make thicker emulsions with Sucragel®?
You can use emulsion stabilisers / coemulsifiers such as Cetearyl Alcohol and Glyceryl Stearate which will add body to your formulation. You can also add a higher level of thickener.
Why are Sucragel® based formulations particularly popular in suncare?
Sucragel® forms a very small droplet size, which helps give a better dispersion of sun filters on the skin, leading to a higher SPF for the same amount of filter. The sensorial characteristics of the product are also excellent, giving fine sprays with no clogging, and low whitening on skin.
