Highly efficient thickeners, at low usage levels.
Polymer swells in water and neutralisation may be required to achieve the desired viscosity (max typically at pH=6).
Thixotropic, possessing shear thinning properties.
Improved bioavailability of active ingredients due to carbomer bioadhesive properties.
