Penreco has developed a unique system for thickening and gelling hydrocarbon materials.

With an infinite number of customized rheological properties available, these Versagel® products are clear, colorless, hydrophobic, thermally reversible and without syneresis.

Penreco offers the following Versagel® products in a variety of viscosities:

  • Versagel® M - for use in personal care products.
  • Versagel® P - for use in many cosmetic, pharmaceutical and personal care applications.
  • Versagel® R - for use in personal care products.
  • Versagel® S - for use in cosmetic formulations.

Penreco's Versagel® products are available in multiple viscosity ranges and are compatible with many common cosmetic ingredients. Versagel® products are visually appealing, odorless and do not discolor with age.
