The Versatile Gelling Agent

HELIOGEL™ is a patented gelling ingredient with emulsifying properties confered by the presence of sunflower phospholipids. It thickens within a wide pH range and emulsifies all types of oil phases.Gel-creams can be formulated with an innovative skin feel, non-tacky and non-greasy. HELIOGEL™ is the solution to combine performance and skin sensation.
