The role of carbomer gel and how to use it

Release time:


Carbomer gel is a kind of stabilizer and thickener in the form of latex. It is made of acrylic (ester) copolymer and has a slight anionic crosslinking and alkali swelling emulsion. Before it is configured, it is a white powdery substance, powdery and fluffy, and has many uses in some daily chemicals.

Carbomer Gel

The carbomer gel stock solution is a water-soluble emulsion with low viscosity and convenient use. After ionizing the carboxyl group in the formula, due to the mutual repulsion of negative charges, the molecular chain expands and becomes sticky in a greatly expanded state. It can produce high-efficiency thickening effect at very low dosage. The gel stock solution can make the liquid system have a special yield value and rheology. Only a very low concentration can make some insoluble additives (particles, oil droplets, etc.) reach a suspended state.

Because of its strong suspending ability, it is widely used to stabilize the water insolubles in traditional essential oils, water emulsions and creams, oil droplets and suspensions. It can provide a beautiful appearance for personal washing ingredients, and the ingredients are transparent in pearl products. Good transparency can increase its bright pearlescent effect.

Mainly used in cleaning and care products such as pearl shampoo, shower gel, hand sanitizer, etc. Products containing high molecular weight such as: care shampoo, anti-dandruff shampoo, moisturizing shower gel, skin care products, foundation cream, foundation lotion sunscreen, hair dye and other products.


1. Prepare the carbomer powder into a solution with deionized water, and slowly drop the alkaline solution into it to adjust to a viscous gel state to obtain the finished carbomer gel.

2. Dissolve the original gel solution in water at room temperature, add other ingredients required for the product, heat to 70-80°C, and adjust the pH to neutral. After uniform emulsification and cooling, stable performance can be obtained. Creams and other products.
