Rheology modifiers

There’s more to cosmetics than just the way they look and how well they work. Sensory properties like consistency, texture, and feel also play a crucial role in a product’s success in the market. Giving the desired form to a product often requires additives like rheology modifiers, also known as thickening agents or thickeners.

In cosmetics, thickening agents ensure consistency in products like lotions, creams and lipsticks when they are applied.
