Emulsion stabilizing,Viscosity controlling
Acrylamide/sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate copolymer is a synthetic ingredient that acts as a viscosity controlling agent and an emulsion stabilizer.
This compound functions as a viscosity controlling agent by forming a gel when mixed with water, which can be useful in a variety of water-based skincare products. In the same way acrylamide/sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate copolymer increases viscosity, it can also stabilize products made of emulsions.
The thickening properties of this ingredient allow it to create a polymer network, which is a network comprised of many individual molecules linked together. This network limits the movement of the emulsion ingredients, resulting in a stabilized system.
