Penreco has developed a unique system for thickening and gelling hydrocarbon materials.

With an infinite number of customized rheological properties available, these Versagel® products are clear, colorless, hydrophobic, thermally reversible and without syneresis.

Penreco’s Versagel® products are available in multiple viscosity ranges and are compatible with many common cosmetic ingredients. Versagel® products are visually appealing, odorless and do not discolor with age. They are easier and safer to formulate with than gels that use metal stearates or fumed silica and they provide fragrance retention in skin care products and furnish waterproofing properties to sunscreen products.
