Methocel™ A4C PCG

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Dow
Methylcellulose. Methocel™ A4C PCG by Dow acts as a film former, suspension aid, lubricant, lather enhancer/stabilizer, emulsion stabilizer, gelling agent and dispersants. Offers a unique feature called interfacial thermal gelation that reflects the combined effects of their surface activity and thermally gelling properties. Delivers luxurious foam and stabilization to a variety of cleansing products. Suitable for low surfactant and mild systems. Aids dispersion by forming protective films around particles to prevent coalescence and agglomeration. It can be combined with xanthan gum or inorganic thickeners to achieve suspension capabilities. 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™ A4C PCG functions primarily as binders, but also adds humectancy and film-forming properties to improve product shelf life and texture.
