Product Name MIGLYOL® Gel B
INCI Name Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (and) Stearalkonium
Hectorite (and) Propylene Carbonate
Product Description
MIGLYOL® Gels are heat-stable oleo gels for cosmetics. They are prepared by jellifying MIGLYOL® neutral oils with inorganic gelling agents.
MIGLYOL® Gel B, MIGLYOL Gel T comprise of plant derived fatty acids and glycerol (from coconut and palmkernel oil) caprylic/capric triglyceride (MIGLYOL ®812, Ph.Eur., organically modified montmorillonite and propylene carbonate (USP*), acting as gelling agent.
MIGLYOL® 840 Gel B consists of synthetic propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, organically- modified montmorillonite and propylene carbonate as gelling agent.
The B grades have a fleshy color, the T grade has a slightly greenish color.

MIGLYOL® Gels have a soft, pasty consistency similar to petrolatum. MIGLYOL® Gels are extremely heat-stable and do not melt, even at temperatures of 100 °C (see fig. 1).
That is why additional fats, oils, waxes or paraffin hydrocarbons and emulsifiers being used in the formulations must be dispersed in the gels homogeneously at 70 - 80 °C. The aqueous phase is then heated up to the same temperature and emulsified using hi-speed agitators and should simultaneously or afterwards being homogenized.
The preparation of stable water-in-oil-emulsions of different consistency is possible with the MIGLYOL® Gels, using very few ingredients. Complicated formulations can be substantially simplified.
MIGLYOL® Gels are chemically neutral, oxidation-resistant and have a long shelf life. Rancidity problems do not occur because only saturated fatty acids are present.
MIGLYOL® Gels are miscible with all oils, fats, waxes and W/O emulsifiers (see Formulation Guide).
MIGLYOL® Gels are insoluble in water and are soluble in ethyl alcohol, acetone and diethylether, whereby a solid residue of montmorillonite remains.
Cosmetic Functions
MIGLYOL® Gels are very compatible with the skin because they do not inhibit the skin respiration. Because of its spreadability and the lamellate structure of the organophilic gel former, MIGLYOL® Gels can easily be spread on the skin. The skin becomes soft and velvety, without a greasy after-feel.
Because of their high thermal stability MIGLYOL® Gels are recommended for use as consistency regulators in cosmetic and pharmaceutical preparations where it is important to maintain viscosity over a wide temperature range (e.g. UV protection creams). W/O emulsions with MIGLYOL® Gels do not show phase separation even after short heating up to 90 °C.
MIGLYOL® Gels promote the thermostability of sticks and other solid/liquid preparations.
