Carbomers are a class of synthetic polymers that are commonly utilized as thickeners and stabilizers in the formulation of cosmetics and personal care products.

Recommended Application:

Carbomers have the ability to absorb and retain water, thereby increasing the viscosity or thickness of cosmetic formulations for thickening and viscosity control purposes. They can create a gel-like consistency that is beneficial in various products including gels, creams, lotions, and serums. By enhancing the texture and spreadability of these products, carbomers make them easier to apply while improving their overall performance.

In terms of stabilization function, carbomers act as stabilizers in cosmetic formulations by preventing the separation between oil- based ingredients from those based on water so as to maintain homogeneity and stability over time. This role becomes especially important for emulsion-based products which need blend between oil phase components with aqueous ones.

Carbomers are used to suspend insoluble particles in a formulation, preventing them from settling at the bottom. This is commonly observed in that contain suspended pigments or shimmer particles.

The inclusion of carbomers in cosmetic formulations can enhance transparency, making them a popular choice for clear or transparent gel-based products that aim to achieve an appealing visual appearance.
