Benecel? HPMC

beyond thickening

Thickener choices can not only impact formulation viscosity but sensorial aspects too. Multifunctional Benecel? hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) products are nature-derived rheology modifiers that enhance the sensory experience. Benecel? HPMC is available in a wide range of grades to suit all your thickening challenges.

Derived from cellulose, a natural, abundant and renewable resource, Benecel? HPMC products are water-soluble, non-ionic polymers. Benecel? HPMC products are efficient thickeners and film formers that enhance foam production and foam stabilization in surfactant systems for improved foam quality that is longer lasting. Due to its non-ionic character, Benecel? is compatible with most commonly used surfactants, enabling optical clarity in formulations.
