POLYNAT® acts as a sensory activator. It brings soft and shiny textures to creams, and transparency to your gel. These properties were evaluated by a study on a panel of ten volunteers who appreciated the appearance of aqueous gels and then applied them to the back of the hand. This texturizer allows you to formulate a good gel texture, making it perfectly soft and shiny, with a smooth after-touch.
