Carbomer is a kind of acrylic resin. It is a white loose powder with strong hygroscopicity. Its molecular structure contains 52% ~ 68% carboxyl group. In water dispersions, a transparent gel can be formed by neutralizing alkaline substances with a non sticky feel. Carbomer has thickening effect in a wide range of pH.
It has the functions of thickening, suspending, emulsifying and pseudothixotropy, regulating the release of water and active substances, etc. it is a rheological modified thickener widely used in cosmetics.
Thickener is an important part of cosmetic formula, which not only makes it easy for the formulator to change the viscosity of the product, but also improves the stability, aesthetic feeling and fluidity of the product.
At the same time, Carbopol resin used for liquid thickening has the following advantages:
① It does not irritate people's skin and eyes. After a lot of research, it is found that it is safer than salt and has been used for more than 50 years;
② Compared with cellulose and guar gum, the suspension stability of silicone oil was higher;
(3) improving foam stability in low foam system.
④ The results show that the cross-linked copolymer of acrylic resin can maintain high viscosity in the presence of salt, and is less affected by the pH value or electrolyte concentration of the solution, so it can be widely used;
⑤ Easy to use, short wetting time, saving a lot of manpower, material resources and time;
⑥ Good corrosion resistance, not easy to be decomposed by microorganisms, easy to preserve;
It has excellent rheology, which can adjust the viscosity of products, improve thixotropy of gel system, and improve product stability.
Only a small amount of carbomer can reach the required viscosity. The conventional dosage is 0.1% to 0.5%, and has the effect of thickening and stabilization. Thus, emulsion, cream and gel products with wide viscosity range and different rheology are prepared.
Another key characteristic of carbomer is its high fluidity, which can make the insoluble components suspend permanently in the low concentration system and make the product uniform and stable, while other thickeners such as cellulose can not provide suspension.
Desheng Technology specializes in the production of carbomer 940 and 980, with advanced production equipment and mature production technology, with an average daily output of tons. The carbomer powder produced by the company is whiter and more fluffy than that on the market, with better transparency after dissolution. According to the customer response, the effect of product use is good, can support free application sample trial, welcome to inquire and order!
