Carbomer is a thickening agent that helps control the viscosity and rhealogy (flow) of cosmetic products. It also helps distribute and suspend insoluble solids into liquid, and prevents the oil and liquid parts of a solution from separating.

Carbomer has the ability to absorb and retain water, and can swell up to 1000 times its original volume when dispersed in water. This ingredient is included in a wide range of personal care products such as styling gels, facial moisturizers, shampoos, eye creams, cleansers and scrubs, etc.
