Carbomer is a polyvinyl carboxy polymer used as a viscosity enhancer, gelling agent, or suspension agent. Carbomer is cross linked with ethers of pentaerythritol, and is used primarily in systems where sparkling clarity or a sharp viscosity response is required. Carbomer can be used to thicken surfactant systems, and to create a suspension product. Viscosity actually has nothing to do with the ability of a product to suspend items such as jojoba beads or capispheres.
