Overview

Hydrogenated polyisobutene is a clear, colorless, and tasteless liquid that is frequently utilized as a base for skincare products that contain oils.

It has emollient features, including good spreadability and little tack upon application. Hydrogenated polyisobutene is a highly viscous ingredient, so it also has the benefit of controlling the viscosity of the product through thickening behavior.

Additionally, this ingredient can incorporate a wide range of oil-based ingredients due to its hydrocarbon structure. As a result, it makes a great solvent for oil-based serums or for the oil phase of emulsions.
