Sepimax™ Zen Powder is a pre-neutralized polymer that can create transparent gels on its own, or can work as 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.

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

Cosmetic Benefits of Sepimax™ Zen Powder:

  • Efficient use at low levels
  • High resistance to electrolytes
  • Wide pH range, even at acidic pH
  • Suspending properties
  • Synergies with other polymers or emulsifiers
  • Elegant sensory profile
  • No neutralization
  • Can be used in hot and cold process formulations
  • No clumping

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%. We think 25% oil might be optimistic with many formulations, but this may well depend on your formulation.

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.

When used with 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.

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.

Solubility: Water

Mixing Method: 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 the electrolytes, for approximately 10 minutes to allow it to hydrate. When used to create a cream gel, sprinkle Sepimax™ Zen into the hot or cold oil phase. Then add your oil phase to your water phase.

Compatibility: It is compatible with silicones, mineral oil, emollient esters and other natural oils and butters. It is an anionic emulsifier, so it is not compatible with cationic ingredients.

Application: clear gels, hair gels, cream gels, lotions, sun care, shampoo/body wash thickener, foam enhancer

Country of Origin: France

Packaging: Our powders are packed in water proof zip lock pouches avoid spillage.

Recommended Storage: Our powders should be stored in cool temperatures away from direct sunlight and moisture in an airtight container. (Current Lot will expire: 06-2025)
