Methocel™ 40-100

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Dow
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. Methocel™ 40-100 by Dow acts as a film former, suspension aid, lubricant, lather enhancer/stabilizer, emulsion stabilizer, gelling agent and dispersants. Delivers luxurious foam and stabilization to a variety of cleansing products. Offers a unique feature called interfacial thermal gelation that reflects the combined effects of their surface activity and thermally gelling properties. Suitable for low surfactant and mild systems. It can be combined with xanthan gum or inorganic thickeners to achieve suspension capabilities. Aids dispersion by forming protective films around particles to prevent coalescence and agglomeration. Delivers light, non-greasy films, an attractive benefit in creams/lotions, suncare products, styling gels, and facial masks. Used in body washes, facial cleansers, shampoos, liquid hand soaps, shaving creams & foams, hair styling mousses and sulfate-free cleansing products. In solid products like make-up, Methocel™ 40-100 functions primarily as binders, but also adds humectancy and film-forming properties to improve product shelf life and texture.
