Sepimax™ Zen is a specialized polymer that is pre-neutralized used to more easily create transparent gels. It can be used on its own, or it can work as as a thickener and stabilizer in emulsions and surfactant systems. It was designed to handle up to 10% salt in an aqueous gel, and doesn’t require neutralization. It works synergistically with fatty alcohols to increase viscosity dramatically in emulsions.

When used to produce a transparent aqueous gel, it produces products with an elegant skin feel and velvety touch. Sprinkle Sepimax™ Zen over the aqueous phase and leave without stirring for a few to 8 hours to hydrate. Or sprinkle Sepimax™ Zen over the aqueous phase and blend using the lowest speed - about 500 rpm - and increase the speed to 1500 rpm as you add electrolytes. Then allow approximately 10 minutes for hydration. 

Easy to use. To create a cream gel just sprinkle Sepimax™ Zen into a formulation in either the cold or hot oil phase. Then add your oil phase to your water phase.  The manufacturer advises up to 25% oil can be incorporated into the gel when coupled with a natural polymer like xanthan or guar gum, agar agar, pectin, cellulose derivatives, or gelatin at 1%. 

Sepimax™ Zen works synergistically with widely used fatty alcohols like cetyl, cetearyl, or behenyl alcohol, at up to 1% in the oil phase of the product to dramatically increase viscosity.

When used in a lotion, it can be used as a stabilizer for up to 15% oils and 4% electrolytes at as low as 2%. Without electrolytes, it can stabilize up to 20% oils.

Sepimax™ Zen can be used to make low pH gels, and can be used with up to 4% glycolic acid, 0.1% magnesium chloride, and 0.2% EDTA.

When used in formulations including surfactants, Sepimax™ Zen increases foam density while thickening anionic and non-ionic surfactants. Used at 2%, it can produce soft and creamy foam and lather.

It is compatible with silicones, mineral oil, emollient esters, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate ,and other natural oils and butters.  It is an anionic emulsifier, so it is not compatible with cationic ingredients.
