DESCRIPTION: ZGel-Maker is a natural modified starch from corn (Zea May) with amazing rheology effects in cosmetics. It offers an excellent viscosity build with a matt finish – ideal for oily skin and reducing the oiliness of formulations. ZGel-Maker makes luxurious-looking crème-gels, helps stabilize emulsions, thickens surfactant systems, and is both hot and cold processable. In hair care it offers strong-hold gels with film-forming properties for style retention.
ZGel-Maker shows excellent stability against heat, acid, shear, freezing, and thawing. It is an ideal natural choice for emulsion products that require improved physical stability and rheology aesthetics. ZGel-Maker produces creamy-looking and feeling emulsions. It remains stable in the presence of high electrolyte levels.

TECHNICAL ADVICE
ZGel-Maker can be added directly to water without the risk of lumping. It will look milky when mixed but will not gel until heated or neutralized. Without heating or neutralization, ZGel-Maker will sediment
Hot Process: Add Z-Gel Maker powder into your cold-water phase (it will not swell unless heated). Heat to 60°C for a few minutes with constant stirring. ZGel-Maker produces a vicious and stable opaque gel.
ZGel-Maker can also be added to the oil phase and mixed as you would general heat-process emulsions.
Cold Process: The gelling process of ZGel-Maker can also be achieved in cold water under alkaline conditions. Add your alkaline pH adjuster to raise the pH. An opaque gel will be formed. Once gelling is completed, the pH can be further adjusted down to the desired pH.
