How to use Natrosol/HEC as thickener?
Hi everyone, I’ve been working on dishwashing formula recently
I use HEC as thickener, I’ve tried two methods in dissolving HEC.
The first method I used is to dissolve HEC in water first and stir it until it reach the desired viscosity and then mix it with another composition.
The second method I used is dissolving HEC powder into my formula solution (exclude HEC).
from this two methods, both of them cannot dissolve the HEC well, so the mixture is parted into two phases. The HEC is placed on the bottom, and the another solution is placed on top of it.
Can you give me some advice about this matter please? or please kindly give your recommendation to try another thickener or another formula.
Thank you so much
