eB-THIX Liquid shampoo thickener

SKU: THK-THIX-001 Categories: , , , Tag:


eB-THIX Liquid is a liquid shampoo thickener produces a substantial viscosity in detergent systems, even at low levels. This multi-functional  high performance ingredient also acts as a counter-irritant aiding the formulation of mild surfactant systems. eB-THIX requires no neutralization and works well in clear and hard-to-thicken systems.

As an easier-to-use liquid, eB-THIX LIQUID works especially well in cold mix systems and provides formulators with the thickening efficiency to create shampoos, body washes, shower gels and liquid soaps or other soap based-products that are economical, as well as theologically appealing. eB-THIX LIQUID  requires no neutralization, forms no nitrosamine byproducts, and often contributes to a ‘conditioned’ feel in rinse-off products.

eB-THIX LIQUID  is ideally suited for applications when accidental thinning occurs in shampoos due to fragrance or other additions and adding other thickeners causes whitening or no thickening reaction.  Can be used to thicken products like shampoos, bath gels, or liquid soaps, simply by preheating  the material to a temperature above 50°C and then adding it to the cold surfactant base with mixing. In most instances, the resultant blend is clear, provided the pH is 5.0 or higher.

However, it is best to check each individual formulation, since some systems may become hazy if mixed this way. If desired, formulations that are quite viscous can be heated and made easier to stir.
