Silicone Hydrogel Emulsions

Hydrogels - Advanced and Powerful Moisture Retention Serums

Product Description INCI Name

Granhydrogel GA-NP is a non-drying hydrate or clathrate gel of glyceryl polyacrylate and characterized by the high power of water retention. Granhydrogel GA-NP does not dry when exposed to air for months or even subjected to vacuum for days. The clathrate, or lattice structure, holds water tightly through hydrogen bonding and vander Waal interactions. Granhydrogel GA-NP is a superb moisturizer and particularly useful for applications in transparent formulas.

This ingredient can be salt sensitive in some formulas, so it is preferentially used in non-ionic systems.

Granhydrogel O-NP is an aqueous solution of the polymer blend of glyceryl polyacrylate and poly(vinylmethylether/maleic anhydride) (PVM/MA). Granhydrogel O-NP forms a moisturizing film on skin with a pleasant after-feel, and features the characteristics of a high power of water retention. Although it can be used as a hand/body moisturizing serum, Granhydrogel O-NP performs with a superior silky feel and clear appearance when directly combined with 1-5% of silicone gels (i.e. a Gransil) or low viscosity silicone fluid of 5-20 cPs. The polymers in Granhydrogel O-NP also function as a surface-active agent when oil/silicone ingredients are incorporated. As an excellent moisturizing agent, Granhydrogel O-NP is recommended be used at 5-20% level in most skin care formulas.

Hydrogels with Polysilicone-11

Product Description INCI Name

Granhydrogel OS-5CS offers a soft, powdery feel, which effectively reduces the tackiness and oily look from glyceryl polyacrylate and PVM/MA.Granhydrogel OS-5CS remains translucent to clear appearance and can be directly used as moisturizing serum. A usage level of 5-20% is recommended in most formulas.
