Don’t Let the Polymers Bite


The IFSCC Congress 2016 is well under way and among various new innovations and concepts, Lubrizol Corporation announced the launch of Carbopol SMART polymers, which deliver cleansing solutions.

While enhancing mildness, skin feel and foaming properties, the polymers will deliver clarity, suspension and rheology to products.

They are easy-to-use liquid polymers, which require no neutralization. The polymer can be added to a process for instant viscosity and yield.

Carbopol SMART 1000 Polymer (INCI: Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate/ HEMA Crosspolymer) helps build stable hand, face and body cleansers using soap and soap-syndet combination systems.

Carbopol SMART 2000 Polymer (INCI: Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate/ HEMA Crosspolymer-2) helps formulate a wide range of products such as body and hand cleansers and high pH soap-based cleansers.

Carbopol SMART 3000 Polymer (INCI: Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate/ HEMA Crosspolymer-2) has yet to launch, but will provide flexibility in formulations to deliver performance independent of formula pH.
