THIXCIN HT requires temperature-controlled activation within the range 55-60°C (130-140°F) and high-shear mixing to develop THIXCIN HT full structure. 
THIXCIN HT is in compliance with Ecocert the ecological and organic cosmetics standards. 

Unless limited by specific formulation requirements, the following incorporation procedure is generally suggested for optimal activation of THIXCIN HT: 
Disperse THIXCIN HT powder with stirring into the whole, or part, of the oil phase at room temperature, or at C. 
Heat the THIXCIN HT and oil mixture to C, if mixed at room temperature. 
Apply high shear mixing for about 20 minutes while maintaining the temperature at C to allow full activation. 
Cool to below 35 C with low to medium shear stirring.

THIXCIN HT is suitable for use in creams, lotions, eye pencils & sticks, eye shadows, mascaras, lip glosses, lipsticks, lip balms, nail-polishes and sun care products. 

Usage of THIXCIN HT:
THIXCIN HT should be added to the emulsion's oil phase or, in non-emulsion-based formulations, at the beginning of the dispersion process, preferably by pre-mixing the solvent or oil for 5 minutes before other components are added.
THIXCIN HT should be subjected to as much shear as possible during processing to develop THIXCIN HT full properties. 

However, when using THIXCIN HT, an incorporation temperature range of 55-65°C must be observed.
Below 55°C, thixotropy will not develop.
Above 65°C, soft gel-like particles may appear on cooling the formulation. 

THIXCIN HT is the presence of higherpolarity oils and solvents will lower this upper temperature limit. 
THIXCIN HT is to avoid the particles forming, continuous stirring should be maintained until THIXCIN HT has cooled to below 45°C.

Applications of THIXCIN HT:
THIXCIN HT is suitable for various cosmetic and personal care formulations, including colour cosmetics, skin care, sun care and hair care. 
THIXCIN HT forms can be emulsions, oil gels, sticks and powders, etc. 

As an effective rheological additive, THIXCIN HT builds viscosity, suspends particulates, offers a high degree of thixotropy and helps control flow. 
THIXCIN HT can greatly enhance the physical stability of formulations, in either emulsions or single oil phase formulations. 

In solid product forms, such as lipsticks or hair styling sticks, THIXCIN HT also functions as a stiffening agent.
Additional benefits may include improved pay-off, added lubricity and a buttery feel. 

In body wash formulations THIXCIN HT proved to be an effective rheological modifier and can be used to achieve the desired false body effect. 
THIXCIN HT water repellency is very useful in products such as lipgloss and lipstick, etc. 
THIXCIN HT can also be used as a dry binder in pressed powders.

Experiment of THIXCIN HT:
The main effects on production (gelator concentration, dissolver rotational speed, heating and cooling times, etc.) of hydrocarbon gels are discussed in detail. 
The experiments were done with 250 ml amounts of Jet A-1 / THIXCIN HT gels in a small laboratory dissolver facility. 

THIXCIN HT (a ricinolic acid derivative) was chosen as gelator because in comparison to silica or bentonite gellants, THIXCIN HT is a combustible organic material and would not change the energy content of the fuel very much. 
For characterisation and quality control of the gels most of the experiments were done with a double-barrel capillary viscosimeter. 

The reason for using this instrument instead of a rotational viscosimeter is that the shear rates necessary for gel atomisation in a rocket injector are much higher (> 105/s) than in rotational viscosimeters which have been used by many other authors. 
Also measurement of extensional viscosity, which plays an important but often ignored role in atomisation, was achieved with this instrument. 

Several test series were conducted in the laboratory facility. 
Variation of production temperature within the range of 40 to 60°C showed that the best results could be achieved by keeping the temperature at 50°C. 
In another test series, the concentration of gelator was varied in the range of 4 to 7% by weight. 

The results show that at least gelator concentrations of more than 5% and dissolver rotational velocities of 1000 rpm are necessary to get stable gels. 
The influence of mixing time was investigated in another test series. 

The results demonstrate that a mixing time not longer than 2.5 hours is sufficient for completion of gel formation. 
The experiments should be considered as a first step to optimisation of the gel production process.
