CLEVELAND , August 24, 2023 (press release) –

Allows formulators to create unique aesthetics in skin cleansing products 

CLEVELAND, Ohio – August 8, 2023 – Lubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) is making thickening and stabilizing challenging-to-thicken cleansers easier with their new Carbopol® SC-800 polymer. The rheology modifier solution for mild and sulfate-free formulations is ideal for shower gels, shampoos and facial cleansers. 

Carbopol® SC-800 polymer has the best thickening efficiency, clarity and suspension properties in studies comparing it to other hydrophobically-modified polymers. This allows formulators the versatility to create unique aesthetics in their skin cleansing formulations, including suspending natural beads, scrubs and other cleansing elements with ease and confidence. 

Foam generation studies also showed that the polymer doesn’t negatively impact foam quality, both in the foam volume generated and its foam morphology. As a result, formulations have the lather quality consumers look for in rinse-off beauty solutions. 

Carbopol® SC-800 polymer is the latest solution in Lubrizol’s Carbopol® family of polymers, well known for their versatility and used extensively in beauty and home care products.
