Rita Expands Thickening Agent Line

November 11, 2005

Rita Corp., Woodstock, IL, is expanding its thickening agents line with the introduction of Rita/Lamberti guars and carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC) products. Rita/Lamberti guars are available as quaternized guars and hydroxypropyl guars. Both are soluble in water, impart a smooth, soft feel to the skin, enhance foam performance and substantivity in shampoos and liquid soaps and function as suspension agents in cosmetic formulations.

CMC is a highly hydrophilic polymer that is soluble in either hot or cold water. It is inert, stable, odorless and colorless and imparts good binding, suspension and film-forming and thickening attributes.
