Formulators have long been searching for new textures that can provide a vehicle for delivering oil, water and actives effectively to the skin. The traditional types of oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions are well established but both have their drawbacks – wouldn’t it be great to combine the benefits of both types? There is a way to do this through a water-in-oil HIPE (High Internal Phase Emulsion) where the amount of internal aqueous phase is greater than 90% and a rich, yet light, quick break effect can be achieved. HIPEgel Aqua from Alchemy Ingredients enables the formulator to achieve high water phase HIPEs simply, instantly and naturally. The resultant creams are stable, naturally viscous systems with an added bonus of being ideal for anti-pollution formulas. The reverse system of high internal oil phase can also be achieved using HIPEgel Oleo!
