Viscosity Enhancement

BASF offers a variety of products that enhance the viscosity of your topical formulation.

In creams and lotions the stiffness or viscosity of the formulation plays an important role in (1) the proper extrusion of the product from the primary package, (2) the handling of the formulation during application, (3) the stabilization of the dispersed phase (e.g. oil, water, solids, etc.) in the primary package and (4) maintaining the homogeneous distribution of the API in the package during shelf life.
