Carbomer is macromoleclar polymer.  Carbomer does not actually refer to one particular molecule, but is a generic term for a series of polymers primarily made from acrylic acid, which are widely used in emulsion, cream and gel. Calculations predict a planar D6h structure with bond lengths similar to the other two carbobenzenes. Its non-planar isomer is called “hexaethynyl-carbo-trannulene” – a pun on the all-cis annulenes – and resembles a cyclohexane ring. This hypothetical molecule is predicted to be more energetic by 65 kcal/mol.

It’s effective in very low concentrations – 0.1-0.5%, replacing the traditional surfactant dosage of 3-7% and it’s not restricted from HLB value and PlT. When it wet again and won’t be emulsified so it’s easy to become a waterproof emulsion without filmogen.

It is a white fluffy powder that’s used in lotions and other cosmetic formulas as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. CarboMer employs its broad technology platforms for the development of a wide spectrum of innovative products. The company manufactures research and diagnostic products, bulk intermediates, pharmaceutical actives, excipients and intermediates, cosmetic ingredients and nutraceuticals. Our products include functionalized carbohydrates, ranging from monosaccharides to polysaccharides, such as cellulosics, chitosans, cyclodextrins, dextrans, beta-glucans, heparins, hyaluronates, synthetic polymers, chiral synthons and many other products. We also offer custom organic synthesis of specialty items, such as amino acids, polypeptides, and drug delivery materials.
