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.

Nature-derived from sustainably-sourced¹ cellulose, 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.
