Pemulen™ TR-2 polymer

China Compliant -Formerly CFDA Halal

Non-ethoxylated polymer to simplify the formulation of mild, oil-in-water emulsions great for sunscreen formulations

Pemulen™ TR-2 polymer is a polymeric emulsifier is a high molecular weight, crosslinked copolymer of acrylic acid and a hydrophobic C10-30 alkyl acrylate co-monomer. It is a versatile, non-ethoxylated polymer designed to create stable and mild oil-in-water emulsions at low use levels. It provides low viscosity emulsions particularly suitable for skin care applications via spray mechanism.

Recommended Use level: Recommended use level is 0.1 to 0.3 wt% as supplied

  • Allows for cold or hot processing enabling flexible processing requirements
  • Can emulsify the highest levels of oil, up to 50% by weight, within a pH range of 4.0 - 5.0
  • Enables formulation of water-resistant oil-in-water emulsions because formulations do not require the use of surfactants
  • Enhanced sensory - light, refreshing and light residue
  • No HLB calculation required when formulating
  • PEG-free
