EipponCell® HEMC LH 6100MS hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose stands out as the most extensively employed product within the cellulose ether category. These products are synthesized through a chemical reaction involving the hydroxyl group on the cellulose chain’s anhydroglucose unit and the etherification agent, ethylene oxide. When dissolved in water, HEMC LH 6100MS generates a non-Newtonian fluid, characterized by its viscosity’s sensitivity to shear rate rather than time. Notably, this viscosity undergoes rapid augmentation as the solution’s concentration increases. As a result, HEMC LH 6100MS finds widespread application as a highly effective thickener and rheological additive across various industries.

Application of HEMC LH 6100MS

EipponCell® HEMC LH6100MS Hydroxyethyl Methyl Cellulose emerges as a water-soluble rheological enhancer, and its applications extend to various daily chemical products such as toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, hand sanitizer, and shoe polish. Its primary role lies in thickening these products while preventing the settling of insoluble substances.

Shower gel, also recognized as body wash, represents a liquid cleanser integral to the bath experience. Distinguishing itself from traditional soap, it offers a more pleasant tactile sensation and gently nurtures the skin's moisture balance.

Within the context of shower gel, HEMC LH6100MS plays a pivotal role. It ensures the stable suspension of mica particles in the gel, enhancing its color and harnessing the skin-cleansing benefits of mica. This combination imparts a smoother feel, mild moisturization, and robust cleansing power to the shower gel. Remarkably, when compared to conventional acrylic copolymer thickeners, HEMC and sodium chloride collaborate as synergistic thickeners. This tandem thickening approach not only guarantees formula stability but also accelerates foaming without necessitating heating or defoaming. The resultant advantages include heightened production efficiency, simplified operations, cost-effectiveness, and a stable formula that lends itself well to broad promotion.
