APPLICATIONS

Our broad range of FLOCARE™ and FLOGEL™ products are specially developed to deliver consumer benefits in Skin Care, Hair Care, and Bath & Shower formulations.

Primary Benefits:

  • Ready and Easy to use
  • Thickening at any stage during the process
  • Cold process with reduced cycle times and energy requirements
  • Multifunctional: thickening, stabilizing, and texturizing
  • Self-preserved products
  • Effective over a wide pH range
  • Allows formulations from sprays to creams
  • No additional surfactants for stable formulations up to 30% oil

Skin Care

SNF offers a wide range of low to highly concentrated thickeners.  These are liquid dispersion polymers (LDPs) produced by an inverse emulsion polymerization process which allows for very high molecular weight, crosslinked polymers, with optimized rheological properties.

Powder grade rheology modifiers are also available.

Hair Care

The FLOCARE™ range of products is available in liquid (solution) or dry form. Film formers (conditioners) are used in personal care formulations to coat hair or skin.  When used in hair care, our conditioning polymers add a smooth coating to the surface of the hair.  This protective coating provides easier combability and softness to the hair.
