Sensogel™ NOVUS

Sensogel™ NOVUS

SENSOGEL™ is a series of pre-neutralized, acrylamide-free liquid thickeners designed to impart a feathery light, “quick break” sensory during application with a velvety soft afterfeel. A robust and versatile rheological modifier, Sensogel™ can be used to make anything from thin spray formulas to thick butters by simply adjusting the usage rate. It can also maintain strong viscosity through an extremely wide pH range, and is especially effective at low pH for formulations requiring specialized treatment actives.


Sensogel Novus was designed with three major goals in mind: 

  • Improving safety of acrylate thickeners to meet clean beauty standards
  • Improving stability issues characteristic of older liquid polymer thickeners
  • Improving sensory profile while creating new texture possibilities
  • INCI

    Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer (and) Water (and) C13-C14 Alkane (and) C15-C23 Alkane (and) Decyl Glucoside (and) Glycerin
