Features and properties

Carbomers keep personal care products consistent - when making a cake, you first put in a few ingredients and they’re kind of lumpy and hard to stir evenly? But then, once you’ve been stirring a while and you’ve mixed everything there’s a nice consistency? Well, personal care products ingredients are the same way–without something to make sure everything is mixing correctly, they would just be a big, uneven mess of individual ingredients. Carbomer can help personal care ingredients stay consistent.

Carbomers thicken personal care products - Going back to our cake analogy, think about what would happen if you didn’t put flour in a cake. It would be a goopy, liquid bowl of slippery ingredients. But again, once you put flour in, the batter thickens, and you can pour it in a pan and eventually eat it. It’s the same with personal care–before you put a thickener in your skincare, you’ve basically just got a bunch of liquids. Carbomer 940HC, carbomer 980HC, carbomer 934, carbomer 990, 981 etc. are like the flour that gives the cake batter its thickness, allowing you to spread it on your skin.
