Sapogel Q is a 100% natural, non-gmo, and palm free, vegan oil-gelling agent. Supplied as a liquid blend, perfect for making translucent, rich balms with the texture of lanolin or petroleum jelly. Sapogel Q is a cold process gellant for vegetable oils, and creates rich, stable and translucent gels with balm- like textures. Sapogel Q is ideal for lip, body and hair care.
The viscosity of formulations made with Sapogel Q will vary based on what oils are used, and can often be thinned out using glycerin. Water can also be added up to 4% to thin the product, but the appearance will be more opaque.
Sapogel Q is not compatible with most surfactants especially those which contain water and are mainly lipophobic, but Cromolient SCE can be used to create a formulation that is easier to wash off.

Unless butters or waxes are used in the formula, all materials can be used at room temperature. Weigh out the Sapogel Q in one beaker and oils in another - if butter or waxes are used, melt these in the oil phase first. With medium overhead stirring, incorporate the oil dropwise into the Sapogel Q phase; speed of addition can be increased after 10% of the oil has been added.
Sapogel Q is compatible with most actives including acidic and alkaline sustances (pH 3-10). Small amounts of water (up to 4%) can be added to give a creamy, serum-like texture.
