Allianz™ OPT polymer INCI Name: Acrylates/C12-22 Alkylmethacrylate Copolymer

Allianz OPT polymer is designed to deliver water resistance and wear resistance to skin care and sun care formulations, including color cosmetics. Allianz OPT polymer is ideal for use in low-viscosity (sprayable) oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions, nonionic emulsification systems and when cold processes are required. Allianz OPT polymer can also be used as an effective thickener and water resistant agent for water-in-silicone (W/S) or water-in-oil (W/O) systems since it thickens the external oil phase.

Allianz OPT polymer is the tetrapolymer emulsion polymerization product of methacrylic acid, methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate and cetyl-eicosinyl methacrylate.

Description

Benefits

Skin Care

Used in body care, color cosmetics and facial care applications.

  • Effective oil phase thickener
  • Water-resistant agent for W/S, W/O, and O/W systems which allows formulation of low viscosity sprayable lotions
  • Unique network structure prevents re-wetting of nonionic ethoxylated emulsions
  • Cold processable
  • Creates very water-resistant, emulsion-based lip care preparations with smooth, non-tacky feel
Sun Care

Used in after-sun, self-tanning, and sunscreen applications.
