Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC)

Products we use it in:  Moisturising Thickening Gel.

What is Hydroxyethyl Cellulose: It is a gelling and thickening agent that is naturally sourced from cellulose, a substance present in plant cell walls.

Usage Benefits: We use it because it serves as an effective thickener, providing a desirable texture to our products. It also forms clear, gel-like solutions that enhance the aesthetic appeal of our formulations. HEC is non-ionic, so it's not only stable but also pH levels, making it versatile for our various formulations. Additionally, it helps to retain moisture on the skin and can stabilize emulsions, contributing to longer shelf life and better performance of the products.

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose enhances hair hold, leaving it silky and smooth without any greasy or flaky residue.

Other benefits: helps to improve manageability, provides conditioning, and reduces frizz. For skin, it offers hydration, forms a smooth film, and enhances the texture of skincare products.
