peeling gel

Hi All,

these exfoliator peeling gel become very popular recently

https://www.amazon.com/Dr-G-Brightening-Peeling-Gel-Ounce/dp/B007TFW0B6

does anyone know what cause the "ball up" effect? From the LOI of different products, my guess would be cellulose (CMC, HEC,etc???) or Carbomer but I am not sure how to get "ball up" pieces from these gelling agents.

thanks

  • I think what you're talking about is called "pilling" and I've seen it happen due to thickeners like HEC or xanthan gum. Some film-forming silicones can also cause this since silicones like to stick to themselves when rubbed. I don't know enough about carbomer to say if it pills or not.
