Covacryl MV60 is a thickener that creates unique textures that range from "mousse" to "marshmallow" when used in aqueous systems. Combined with Unipure LC hydrophobic pigments it gives a mousse-like texture with a smooth, soft velvety feel. By encapsulating the water it imparts a long lasting fresh skin feel. The addition of 0.5 - 1.5% of Covacryl MV60 changes the texture of O/W skin care creams giving a fresh feel on application and leaves a non-sticky, matt, powdery film on the skin.
