Details Ingredients & Additional Information COA (Certificate of Analysis)

Cellulose Thickener, also known as cellulose gum, is used as an emulsifier, thickener, suspending agent, etc., used in cosmetics. It’s also added to hair shampoos, toothpastes and liquid soaps, to generate their characteristic thick consistency and can be employed as a mild glue which can be washed away with water.

Cellulose is commonly referred to as Methylcellulose. The use of these two words is not clear to most people and the words are often interchanged.

So, here goes the explanation, hoping this is not to technical.

Cellulose is a complex carbohydrate that forms the main constituent of the cell wall in most plants and is important in the manufacture of numerous products, while methylcellulose is more of a description of a chemical reaction or process that occurs (organic chemistry) when cellulose (a white powdery substance), reacts with water (the chemical reaction or methylation of cellulose), which results from swelling with water to form a gel.

Methylation is a vital metabolic process that happens in every cell and every organ of our body. Life would simply not exist without it. It takes place more than a billion times per second in the human body.

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is generally the synthetic version of cellulose.

Cosmetic Use: Use this product in creams, lotions, soaps, lip balms and other formulations.

Our Cellulose Thickener is naturally sourced.

5 of 5 Processing Time / Service March 31, 2017
Reviewer: Karen Byrd Shumate from Sugar Land, TX United States  
I accidentally came across your website.  I have been purchasing most of my product ingredients from everywhere except Texas, until I found you.  I was thrilled to finally find a Texas Company with good quality products and EXCELLENT processing time.  I was completely taken by surprise when my package arrived three days after I ordered it.  I was expecting at least a week like most online stores.  I know exactly where I will be shopping from now on, especially since I am in Texas.  Thank you for processing my order and delivering it with such quality and speed.  The Cellulose Gum is just what I was looking for.  Great product.  Thank you. Karen
