Carbomer is a polymer with a high molecular weight. It's a typical thickening that's used in a wide range of personal care products, as well as disposable sanitising gels. As one of the main import suppliers of carbomer in China, Lubrizol's Carbomer U20/21 and 940/941 are widely used models on the market. Lubrizol Carbomer U21 generally costs 250-290 RMB/kg, while 940 costs between 150 and 180 RMB/kg. However, as a result of the epidemic, carbomer prices soared in 2020, disrupting supply to China. Furthermore, domestic manufacturing was unable to meet overseas demand, resulting in an increase in carbomer prices. Lubrizol Carbomer U21's market price went up to 380 RMB/kg, while the price of 940 increased to 319 USD/kg.

About Carbomer:

Carbomer refers to a series of polymers that is primarily composed of acrylic acid. In appearance, it is a white, fluffy powder. It helps to distribute or suspend an insoluble solid in a liquid, keep emulsions from separating into their oil and liquid components, control the consistency and flow of the products, and can absorb and retain water. It is most commonly used as a gelling agent in cosmetics and personal care products to produce creams, ointments, and gels, especially formulated for the application on mucous membranes. It can be found in a wide range of product types including skin, makeup, and hair care products.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Carbomer via Free Radical Polymerisation

In order to produce Carbomer, the process of free radical polymerisation is utilised. In this process, thermochemical initiators such as potassium persulfate and AIBN are utilised to complete the free radical polymerisation of acrylic acid. The monomers used to produce Carbomer are acrylic acid and polyalkenyl polyethers.
