GP-1 is an oil gelling agent, derived from glutamic acid. It can be used to form clear hard oil sticks and/or clear oil gels. It can also be used in emulsion systems to increase stability. It has a wide range of applications in skin care, makeup and hair care.
�The sensory feeling of oil gels is the same as oils themselves.
�Small amounts of GP-1 (1~4wt.%) can make hard oil gels of cyclomethicone, mineral oil and so on.
�Small amounts of GP-1 (0.2~1wt.%) can make viscous oil gels of polyisobutene.
�Oil gels can be melted at the lower temperature than the dissolution of GP-1.
