CG-G 940 (Carbomer; equiv-Carbopol 940)
CG-G 940 is a thickening agent for aqueous solution. These solutions are pseudoplastic and non-thixotropic, the gel structure is easily broken-down by shear, and comes back to its initial value.
CG-G 940 has a high yield value. So it is an effective agent for emulsion stabilization and stable suspension of solid particles.
It is used in hair care and skin care products, for gel, lotion and cream formulation.
