Abstract

The use of low melt polyethylene is found to reduce the solubility temperature and reduce the pouring temperature in an anhydrous base using isododecane oil and cyclomethicone. The use of hyperbranched polyolefins and polyethylene in an anhydrous base formulas is found to depress the pouring temperature and modify the structuring characteristics. Other benefits are increased hardness, improved lubricity, higher gloss, film forming and moisturization of the anhydrous base.

Benefits of Using Low Melt Polyethylene in Anhydrous Systems

Abstract:

The use of low melt polyethylene is found to reduce the solubility temperature and reduce the pouring temperature in an anhydrous base using isododecane oil and cyclomethicone. The use of hyperbranched polyolefins and polyethylene in an anhydrous base formulas is found to depress the pouring temperature and modify the structuring characteristics. Other benefits are increased hardness, improved lubricity, higher gloss, film forming and moisturization of the anhydrous base.

This unique polyethylene has been distilled giving it a tight MW, and Polydispersity of 1.000X.

Due to its unique properties this new low melts polyethylene.

Disclosure on Hyperbranched Polyolefins

New Phase Technologies discloses the use of a low melt polyethylene in an anhydrous system using oils such as castor oil, cyclomethicone and isododecane oil to lower solubility temperature, increase hardness, improve stability and lower pouring temperature. The anhydrous base formulas consist of a low melt polyethylene used for structuring cyclomethicone. Other oils can include mineral oil, castor oil, C12-C15 Alkyl Benzoate, which are compatible and able to solubilize in this

Addition of a low melt polyethylene higher than 10% is effective at structuring hed polyolefins above 5% is particularly effective; depending on the oils, this level may be lower or increased. It is found tha...
