Sodium Polyacrylate

Definition

Sodium polyacrylate is a cleaning agent, or "surfactant," that can also be found in eye creams, moisturizers and sunscreens. We use it in our products to remove dirt and deposits by surrounding dirt particles to loosen them from the surface they're attached to, so they can be rinsed away. Sodium polyacrylate can also be used as a thickener. We use it to improve the texture of a product and help it maintain a gel-like texture.
