The Universal Selection Source: Cosmetics Ingredients

Thickeners & Stabilizers

Thickeners are added to enhance the the stability and the overall performance of the cosmetic product. While some thickeners act as emulsifiers, majority of them function like moisturizers. As thickeners are derived from varied sources, they can be completely natural like waxes and also synthetic or semi-synthetic. Stabilizers on the other hand maintain the function and activity of other ingredients present in the cosmetic formulation, like the pH value to check excessive acidity or alkalinity of the product.
