Rheology modifiers like cross-linked polyacrylates are commonly used to obtain the desired viscosity and feel of a personal care product. They require activation through neutralization of their acid-functional groups, and easily accessible bases like NaOH or KOH are commonly used. However, products formulated with such harsh bases suffer from storage instability, compromised skin feel, and skin irritation. Additional ingredients are then necessarily added to compensate for these shortfalls, leading to increased product costs.
 
This study shows that primary aminoalcohols such as aminomethyl propanol, aminomethyl propanediol, and tromethamine help formulators formulate products with superior long-term stability, skin feel, and safety profile.
