Hydrogenated Polydecene

Home / Ingredient Glossary / Hydrogenated Polydecene

Hydrogenated Polydecene is created when polydecenes are hydrogenated. It’s a non-sticky emollient that creates a smooth and silky feeling on skin. It’s easily spreadable and allows for an even and easy application of creams. Being an emollient, it also provides moisturising benefits.

In our case, Hydrogenated Polydecene is the oil portion of a multifunctional liquid thickener and emulsifier. This liquid thickener is a polyacrylate polymer dispersed using lauryl glucoside (surfactant) in an oil phase of hydrogenated polydecene. It helps hold the oil and water phases of a formula together while increasing viscosity.

The oily liquid polymer delivers an elegant sensory experience with an enjoyable spreading, cascading effect and a soft, non-tacky skin feel. It has good stability in the presence of electrolytes so is a great option for formulas with a high concentration of active ingredients.
