Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose for Detergent Industry

Daily chemical products are constantly upgrading with the development of science and technology nowadays. As we all know, there are many different raw materials in the production process of daily chemical products, especially household detergent products, and sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is one of the key raw materials in both cost saving and quality improving. Why is CMC an important material in detergent products? Let’s discuss the characteristics of CMC below.


CMC is odorless, tasteless, non-toxic white powder. It can be fully dissolved in water and form a transparent sticky colloid. It can also be dissolved in cold water, so there is no need for advance treatment before using, which is convenient and time saving in the production process of detergent products. When dissolved in cold water, CMC solution is has high transparency and thickening effect with no stratification. It can be used as good thickener, stabilizer and dispersant, which could also help other materials better dissolved in water.

In liquid detergent() product, CMC has the effect of emulsification, thickening, homogenization and protective colloid. Adding CMC to liquid detergent can make the product with high denseness and good transparency. It will be easy to rinse and our hands will not be slippery. In paste detergent, CMC plays the role of dispersion, suspension and stabilization. In soap manufacturing, it can make the soap pliable and easy to process and press. CMC is one of the best active additives for synthetic detergent, dish washing detergent, shampoo, hair coloring cream, skin care products and soap.
