Sodium Carbomer - Preneutralized Carbomer

CAS No. 73298-57-4, 9003-04-07
Sodium Carbomer is a pre-neutralized synthetic polymer that can be used to thicken, suspend and stabilize cosmetic formulations.  Requiring very low concentrations,  Carbomers are often used to adjust the viscosity of cosmetic preparations.  They dry quickly and are not film forming.
 
Sodium Carbomer does not require the alkaline catalyst that all other Carbomers require.  Sodium Carbomer is already neutralized, and in the sodium carbomer form, it is a dry powder with a pH of approximately 6.5. After mixing with water to create a simple gel matrix, the pH remains a 6-7.5. Unlike most Carbomers which are acidic and need to be neutralized with an alkaline substance to thicken them after introduction, Sodium Carbomer does not. As it is sprinkled into a formulation, it readily thickens within a pH range of approximately 5.0 to 10 at a concentration of 0.2%.
 
Carbomers as an ingredient family resist bacterial attack and do not readily support mold growth.  Under normal conditions, gels prepared with Sodium Carbomer neither prevent nor promote the growth of microorganisms; therefore the addition of a suitable preservative system is advisable.

 
Benefits
  • Low dusting powder for superior handling
  • Quick dispersion
  • Simplifies the production process
  • pH is constant during the production process
  • The viscosity of finished products can be modified
  • Can tolerate a 70:30 water/alcohol blend

 

Formulation Guidelines
  • Sodium Carbomer does not require any pre-dispersion as it thickens the formulation as soon as it is sprinkled into the water or a water/alcohol blend giving a clear viscous gel.
  • Slow addition of the powder avoids the formation of lumps and guarantees quick thickening.
  • During preparation of emulsions, Sodium Carbomer can be dispersed into the oil or the water phase before the emulsification step. 
  • It can also be sprinkled directly into the emulsion, stirring until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
  • The pH achieved at 0.5% in water is around 7. If a lower pH is required, small adjustments are possible by adding acids (e.g. citric acid or lactic acid). High amounts of acid should be avoided because of the formation of salts that negatively affect the viscosity.
  • The addition of water soluble UV absorbers can help prevent polymer degradation caused by UV radiation (which can cause a loss of viscosity).

I just wanted to say thank you to Jen for the fantastic customer service, and for saving me $$$ on my shipping. My order was placed May 6 and it arrived at my door this morning May 12 !!! Thank you so much
Joanna White

I've been bouncing around between your company and others for products like cyclomethicone, etc. You have won out for a number of reasons. I love everything about your company. One problem; I live in NY. And I'm so anxious to get my products. Nevertheless your shipments are received in a very timely fashion. Thanks for the sample of SheaNilotica. It's fabulous.

Hands down the best tube company I have found. SO grateful for your fast shipping and fantastic customer service. All of my orders have shipped same day, and that is VERY very exciting and very much appreciated. You guys work hard and it shows!

Lotioncrafter is absolutely my favorite supplier. They have one of the most extensive collections of ingredients around. And I have not found anyone else who can even come close to beating their prices or their quality! They also have great shipping. However much I figure shipping is going to cost for my order, it always comes to less than I thought. If I order on Monday night, I get the email telling me my order has shipped Tuesday at 10 am. The order then arrives at my door on Friday. Lotioncrafter orders arrive so much faster and cost less than other suppliers! Which is great for me, as it is so hard for me to wait for my orders to arrive. Lotioncrafter, you're a pleasure to do business with! I couldn't be more pleased with your service.
