So, what is disteardimonium hectorite?

Disteardimonium hectorite is a natural clay mineral that is commonly used as a thickening agent in various cosmetic and personal care products. It is odorless, colorless, and has a high swelling capacity, which makes it highly effective at creating a smooth and creamy texture. When added to formulations, it helps to improve the stability and consistency of the product, prevent separation, and enhance the spreadability. Disteardimonium hectorite is also used in some food products as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener. With its versatile range of benefits, this ingredient is widely popular among formulators and consumers alike.
