Treat consumers to a luxurious experience

BENTONE GEL® DM5 V is a specially prepared dispersion of a non-animal origin organically modified hectorite clay in dimethicone.

BENTONE GEL® DM5 V delivers a combination of benefits in a single, easy to use product. It is designed to impart rheological control and suspension to both organic- and silicone-based cosmetics. It is an easily spreadable, non-oily emollient, which leaves a soft, non-tacky skin feel. BENTONE GEL® DM5 V is also particularly useful in emulsions and can be used in "cold process" systems. It provides thermostable viscosity control of the emulsion's oil phase, imparts thixotropic flow, improves application properties, offers unique and rich textures, enhances skin-feel by masking greasy or tacky components and imparts a pleasant residual silkiness to the skin.

BENTONE GEL® DM5 V is an excellent alternative to cyclopentasiloxane based products.
