November 4, 2013

The Lubrizol Corporation introduced Glucamate CCO thickener. This newest rheology modifier in the family of methyl glucoside derivatives is a non-ethoxylated, naturally-derived thickener for mild surfactant systems. This product is compatible with a variety of sulfate and sulfate-free surfactants, is exceptionally easy to use and provides unprecedented formulation flexibility, allowing formulators creativity in a cost-effective manner.

Glucamate CCO thickener is an ester of methyl glucose that structures surfactants in personal care cleansing formulations, enabling elegant face, body and hair cleansing products that are crystal clear and mild on the skin. Its excellent compatibility with a wide range of ingredients gives formulators the freedom to create many different kinds of high-performing products. Glucamate CCO thickener, 93% derived from natural sources, is ideal as a thickener in ethoxylate-free surfactant cleansing formulations where a high renewable ingredient content is desired.
