Carbomer used in O/W lotion and cream,
Favorable suspending agent,
Moisturizing ability carbomer ingredient
Carbomer 980 is a crosslinked polyacylatepolymer with strong moisturizing ability, acting as high-efficient & low-dosage thickener and suspending agent. It can be neutralized by alkali to form clear gel. Once its carboxyl group is neutralized, molecule chain expands extremely and viscidity comes up, due to mutually exclusion of negative charge. It can enhance yield value and rheology of liquid substances; Thus, it is easy to get insoluble ingredients (granual, oil drop) suspended at low dosage. It is widely used in O/W lotion and cream as favorable suspending agent.
