high PH polymer

i want to make a clear transparent soap base face wash and the final ph is round about 9-10. i want to suspend beads in it 
so tell me about any thickener which is suitable for me

    Both Dow and Lubrizol have polymer based thickeners that are stable at higher pH.
  • @ozgirl thanks
    can you tell me more about chemicals name

    A google search with the company name, thickener, cosmetics and high pH should help you locate product names and any other information you want.

    Check Aculyn 88, Aculyn Excel from Dow. I remember Aculyn 88 having suspension properties, but it all depends on the rest of the formulation and the size of the beads you want to suspend.

    thanks for your responce but i want to add it in high PH products and aculyn88 not suitable for high ph

    Usman did you even go through the TDS of the product which clearly mentions 4-12 pH range depending on the formulation.
