Xicare™ Aqueous Dispersants

Orbiscope’s Xicare™ Aqueous Dispersants product line is a class of advanced dispersants for sun care and color cosmetics. The three Xicare copolymers allow for easy dispersing of metal oxide pigments in water rather than oil.

Using Xicare to create water-based formulations allows for excellent spreadability resulting in a weightless, smooth skin feel due to the external aqueous phase. In addition, oil in water dispersions are much easier to prepare as this can be done at room temperature, allowing you the freedom to utilize thermally sensitive ingredients.
