Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) is a natural gum derived from pine and spruce tree trunks. It is a non-ionic, water soluble thickening agent for water based cosmetic and personal care products. Hydroxyethyl Cellulose will also help to enhance the foaming action of surfactants. This allows us to use less surfactant, making shampoos and cleansers more gentle and effective. Our Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) can be used to thicken shampoos, body washes and shower gels effectively.
