What is Carbomer

Xi’an Lyphar Biotech Co., Ltd is one of the professional manufacturer of cosmetics raw materials in China, and Carbomer is one of the main items in our company, the brief introduction is as follows.

Carbomer is a high molecular polymer of acrylic acid-bonded allyl sucrose or pentaerythritol allyl ether. Calculated according to the dry product, the carboxylic acid group (—COOH) should be 56.0% to 68.0%. Carbohydrate, also known as carbomer, is an acrylic cross-linked resin obtained by cross-linking with acrylic acid such as pentaerythritol. It is a very important rheology modifier. The neutralized carbomer is an excellent gel matrix. It has important uses such as thickening and suspension, simple process and good stability, and is widely used in lotions, creams and gels.

Carbomer series:

◎ Carbopol 940: Short rheology, high viscosity, high clarity, low ionic resistance and shear resistance, suitable for gels and creams.

◎ Carbopol 941: Long rheology, low viscosity, high clarity, moderate ionic resistance and shear resistance, suitable for gels and emulsions.

◎ Carbopol 934: Cross-linked polyacrylic resin, topical drug delivery system, stable at high viscosity, for concentrated gels, emulsions, suspensions.

◎ Carbopol 1342: Cross-linked polyacrylic resin, topical delivery system, excellent rheology modifier in the presence of electrolytes, polymeric emulsification.

◎ Carbopol 980: Cross-linked polyacrylic resin, topical delivery system, crystalline clear gel, water or alcohol solvent.

◎ Carbopol ETD 2020: Acrylate/C10-30 alkyl acrylate cross-chain copolymer, long rheology, low viscosity, high clarity, high ion resistance and shear resistance, suitable for clear gels.

◎ Carbopol AQUA SF-1: Liquid, long rheology, can be formulated into clear formulations, has excellent compatibility with a variety of ingredients, acid-returning thickening, can be used in surfactant systems.

◎ Carbopol Ultrez 21: Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate cross-chain copolymer, short rheology, for gels, detergents, high electrolyte products, creams, lotions.

◎ Carbopol Ultrez 20: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylates Cross-Chain Copolymer, Long Rheology, Shampoo, Shower Gel, Cream/Lotion, Electrolyte Skin Care, Hair Care Gel.

◎ Pemulen TR-1: Acrylate/C10-30 alkyl acrylate cross-chain copolymer, thickening emulsifier, short rheology, used in creams and lotions.

◎ Pemulen TR-2: Acrylate/C10-30 alkyl acrylate cross-chain copolymer, thickening emulsifier, long rheology, for emulsions.

Function:

Can be used as emulsifier

1. Not limited by HLB value and PlT

2. Can emulsify any liquid oil at room temperature

3. Emulsify waxes if the wax is melted during the manufacturing process

4. No re-emulsification when re-wetting, easy to prepare waterproof emulsion without film-forming agent

5. Can be prepared: moisturizing creams, lotions, cleansers, sunscreen products, alcohol-free perfumes, fragrance hair conditioners (enhancing shine, easy to comb), hand washes, low-consistency sprayable emulsions and transparent microemulsions, etc.

Used in skin care products

Hydrophilic thickener, stabilizing emulsifier, suspending agent, gelling agent, with good transparency, it needs to maintain medium to weak alkaline to have consistency, so it cannot coexist with acid activating ingredients, in addition, Carbomer is also afraid of salts Therefore, it is impossible to add mineral ions, otherwise the consistency will disappear and it will be irritating to the eye mucous membrane. For high molecular weight polymers, the higher the number (eg Carbomer 940), the larger the polymer molecule.
