Carbomer are composed of large polymer chains, and the larger the chains, the greater their impact on skin care formulations. Acts as an emulsifier in skin care products and helps prevent the separation of emulsions into oil and liquid components. It can also control the viscosity, texture and appearance of cosmetics. Due to these beneficial properties, carbomer is widely used in cosmetics, nail polish and personal care products in addition to skin care and hair care products.

6. It can show high viscosity at low concentration.

7. It can promote better bioadhesion properties.

8. It has good thermal stability.

9. Carbomer shows good rheological properties in application.

10. Soluble in water and some organic solvents, but insoluble in oil.

11. Due to the structure of carbomer, it acts as a surfactant and is used to increase the water solubility of hydrophobic substances.

12. Carbomers exhibit water absorption and water retention properties. They can swell up to 1000 times their original volume in water.
