Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC)
CAS No. 9004-65-3

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) is multifunctional as a lubricant, foam enhancer and stabilizer, thickener, emulsion stabilizer and film former for hair and skin care products. HPMC is especially useful in surfactant systems for its foam enhancing properties, helping with the formation of bubble structure, leading to richer, longer lasting lather. HPMC has a high tolerance for both salt and alcohol.

Techniques for Dispersion
 

  • The preferred method is to begin by heating approximately 1/3 of the total formulation water to 167°F (75°C) or higher. Add the HPMC to the vortex of agitated and heated water. Mix until fully dispersed. HMPC will not dissolve at this temperature. After complete dispersion, add the remaining water at room temperature or colder and continue mixing for 30 minutes after the total solution has cooled to 77°F. (25°C) or less. Proceed with the formulation.
     
  • If heating is impossible, it is preferred to slurry the HPMC in a non-solvating media, such as glycerin or PEG, then add the slurry to the vortex of vigorously agitated water. Adding HPMC directly to cold water is not preferred, but if necessary, must be done very slowly under vigorous agitation. Expect longer mixing times for complete dissolution.

Our Customers Say...
First time ordered on 10th October, 2011 and am just loving the information sent on tracking my order from USA to Australia.. well done
Colleen Hagarty, (Jordella)

Absolute best customer service on the web! I am most impressed with the high quality packaging and array of nice products - especially the East African Shea butter which is the best shea i have used to date especially for facial care. Thanks again
Rosa

I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.
Nhan

I just wanted to say that from my very first time ordering from lotioncrafter in 2014 & now 2016 this company has been consistently amazing. I have never had an issue with anything at all. Every order is shipped promptly (without paying ridiculous fee) ingredient information is readily available (not hidden), quality is unquestionable, and should you need to contact someone you will get a response immediately ...only thing I could cry about is I wish they carried serecite, pigments, sci, smc taurate, ... etc so I could only order from them...which is unreasonable on my part. Truly a reputable high quality supplier
Tracey

I have been ordering from Lotioncrafter for 2 years and I love them! I make my own Organic beauty products and I rely on good quality ingredients to make my products for my customers. I love the prices here and the quality is exceptional! I am a faithful customer who keeps coming back! I love the Rosehip and sea buckthorn oils to name a few!
