Ingredient Description

Hectone® is a range of pre-dispersed organoclays in various oils and solvents. They are used as thickeners and rheological additives in emulsions and other cosmetic preparations. Hectone® products impart a soft and rich skin feel upon application, and the appearance and after feel vary from a mat and dry feel to a slight sheen and soft feel depending on the dispersion media used. Hectone® Flaxseed, HCO, HVO, LA and Rapeseed are ideal for natural formulations as they are based on natural and hydrogenated oils. In addition to the standard products, custom tailored Hectone® are available upon request.
