Thickeners for Cosmetic Products

Cosmetic thickeners increase viscosity

Much of the feel and usability of a cosmetic formulation depends upon the viscosity and feel. Cosmetic Thickeners allow you to easily change the viscosity of your product, whilst adding feel and sensory enhancement.


The thickeners can aid skin feel

Glyceryl oleate not only improves the viscosity of your product, but also adds re-fatting properties which will help with the feel and efficiacy of your finished product.

Cold and Hot Process

Some of the thickeners require melting and are thus suitable only for hot process production. Other ingredients, such as Carbomer are perfect for cold process thickening.
