Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is a water-soluble polymer offering a broad range of properties. It is a multifunctional cellulose-based thickening agent - for improved foam quality and skin feel in shampoos & body-wash, as an efficacy booster in conditioners, for improved lubricity and slip in shaving creams, for a rich, luxurious skin feeling in creams and lotions, as a stabilizer in antiperspirants and deodorants.

Besides thickening, the Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose exhibits surface activity that enhances foam properties such as creaminess and foam stability.
