High Viscosity Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose HPMC for Detergent Shampoo

High viscosity hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) is a thickening and stabilizing agent commonly used in various cleaning applications, including detergent shampoos. It is a non-ionic, water-soluble cellulose ether that forms clear or slightly hazy viscous solutions .

Here are some of the benefits of using high viscosity HPMC in detergent shampoos:

  • Increased viscosity: HPMC thickens the shampoo, making it feel more luxurious and easier to control during application.
  • Improved stability: HPMC helps to suspend other ingredients in the shampoo, preventing them from separating or settling out.
  • Enhanced lather: HPMC can improve the lathering properties of the shampoo.
  • Film formation: HPMC can form a thin film on the hair, which can help to detangle hair and improve manageability.
  • Safe and gentle: HPMC is a non-toxic and non-irritating ingredient, making it suitable for use in shampoos for all hair types.
