About Mackadet OPR-2

Mackadet® OPR-2 is a naturally derived opacifier with an RCI of 90%. It is easy to formulate with and suitable for sulfate-free formulations, providing a rich and creamy appearance.

  • INCI Name: Cocamidopropylbetaine, Glycol distearate, Sodium Benzoate
  • Appearance: White liquid
  • Compatible between pH 2 and 10
  • Versatile solution: can be added at any step in the formulation
  • Active content %: 42.0 –45.0
  • No need to add rheological agent if RV viscosity is above 3000cps

Mackadet® OPR-2 is cold processable, offering a much better whitening performance than standard synthetic acrylates, and it vastly improves the colour of dyes – helping you reduce the amount of dye needed in your formulations.

The morphology of Mackadet® OPR-2 is different from a pearlescent agent, making it a more effective opacifier:
