METOLOSE® products are water-soluble polymers, developed as derivatives of cellulose. METOLOSE® is highly compatible with surfactants. When dissolved in water and organic solvents, METOLOSE® creates a highly transparent and viscous liquid. It can improve the skin feeling upon use and create a fine/creamy foam while extending the time of foam retention.
In addition to METOLOSE®, the Shin-Etsu Group company, SE Tylose, produces Tylose® products.
Tylose® offers a multitude of applications in the field of personal care. Tylose hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a widely used additive in the cosmetic field.
