|Carbopol® Aqua SF-2 Polymer
Use: Due to the increasingly negative perception of paraben and formaldehyde donor type preservatives, the personal care market is shifting toward the use of food grade preservatives like Sodium Benzoate. These natural preservatives require a pH level near 5.0, which sacrifices desired formulation clarity and flow properties when using currently available rheology modifiers. Carbopol® Aqua SF-2 polymer responds to this market trend by offering rheology modification that delivers high clarity and superior suspension in the 4 to 6 pH range. Now formulators can display colorful beads, sparkling pearls, and exfoliating scrubs while also achieving claims of “paraben-free,” “formaldehyde-free,” “preservative-free,” and even “skin neutral pH”.
