Hydroxyethyl Cellulose


Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a thickener that can also be found in cosmetics and personal care products such as makeup, skin care products and shaving cream. In some products, hydroxyethyl cellulose can also be used as a binder, which helps ingredients hold together. We use it to improve the texture of a product and, as needed in some formulas, help a product to cling to surfaces such as a toilet bowl.
