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...
I placed an order less than an hour ago,(a Monday morning) and just received an e-mail notice that my package is on the way, will be here in northern CA in 2 days regular UPS!

Thanks, Jenny!
Janey Davies, (Scrubology Soap)

I have never been so moved to show appreciation as i am right now. i can't believe my order was so speedy; and with just the standard shipping too! i received it within 5d on the dot to Canada using USPS.

And if the service wasn't enough i must say i am completely in love with everything i ordered. I couldn't imagine the Shea Nilotica being much different from the standard shea you can get everywhere else but it's like night and day! i can't even look at my remaining shea anymore because it pales in comparison. the Shea Nilotica is so silky, never gets clumpy or grainy and goes on so smooth it felt like a spa treatment. My other favourite is the SheaAloe which at first seemed like a miss; i was expecting a thicker, more creamy feel but it's quite thin. What surprises me about it though is that even though it does not go on thick, it is incredibly incredibly moisturizing and is very readily absorbed into my thick african hair.

i'll be ordering more of the Shea Nilotica (the 5gallon bucket this time) and likely some product continers as well. Thank you once again for being awesome.
