INTRODUCTION

The SynKos Wax Series is comprised of white, synthetic waxes with unique gelling and texturing capabilities. SynKos waxes are synthetic hydrocarbon polymers manufactured by GTL (gas-to-liquid) technology from natural gas. They can function like petroleum-based hydrocarbons, while being more consistent and offering a lower cost.

FORMULATION GUIDELINES

SynKos Waxes are used as gelling agents, thickeners, viscosity modifiers, and barriers. They are also used to modify hardness, slip and melting point. These products have compatibility with all cosmetic systems, including; vegetable oils, esters, and low viscosity fluids like cyclomethicone and isododecane. Look for our gel data on the following cosmetic fluids to get the gel that is best for each system.

  • C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate
  • Caprylic Capric Triglycerides
  • Castor Oil
  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Isododecane
  • Isononyl Isononanoate
  • Isopropyl Palmitate
  • Mineral Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Trioctyldodecyl Citrate

NO REGULATORY CHALLENGES

SynKos Waxes offer the formulator another choice of chemistry and INCI designation from both petrochemical waxes and polyethylene.
INCI Name: Synthetic Wax
Manufactured: Watertown, Connecticut, USA
Usage Levels: 1-50%

HOW TO CHOOSE

Each SynKos wax has its own chemistry and therefore different gel strengths in cosmetic fluids, esters and oils. They also have distinct melt points. Formulators should analyze the chemistries in their project and review provided gel data. The congeal points of each wax will also help determine which SynKos is right for each formula.
