    Dear Formulators, 

    I have recently come across LUBRAGEL CG by Ashland. I want to use this chemical in my creams, gels & lotions formulation. I would like to know at what concentrations i should add & at which phase (before emulsion or post emulsion). Any guidance is appreciated. Thank you !

    Unfortunately the first pic is hard to read, but if you zoom in you should be able to read it. 
    Here’s the text - 
    o superior moisturization

    o imparts an inviting after-feel, slip

    o excellent lubricity, spreadability,
    emolliency

    o broad formulation compatibility,
    long shelf life

    o good auxiliary thickening, suspending
    power, viscosity enhancement

    o water-soluble
    o cold-processable

    Recommended usage - 5.0–25.0%.

    It looks like they use it only in shampoos - and at 0.5%. 

    Hope this helps :)
