Hydroxyethyl Cellulose is a gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose. It is widely used in domestic products including cleaning supplies, cosmetics and other household products.

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose polymers are primarily utilised as a water-binder and thickening agent in various industrial applications, which includes pharmaceutical formulations, personal care products, adhesives, building materials, etc. They are also used as a stabiliser for liquid soaps.

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose is a polysaccharide derivative having properties like emulsifying, gel-thickening, water-retaining, bubble-forming and stabilising. It is a crucial component in numerous domestic cleaning goods, lubricants, and cosmetics and have non-ionic and water-soluble nature. It is frequently used as a component in topical medicine formulations for the delivery of hydrophobic pharmaceuticals, such as artificial tear solutions, and as an adjunct agent in ocular pharmaceutical preparations.


Food industry: HEC polymers are broadly used in the food industry as a stabiliser, an emulsifier, thickener and as a protective hydrocolloid.

Building Materials & Adhesives: It is appropriate for dry mortar construction, putty for inside and outside walls, adhesives, caulks, interface agents, coatings, and self-levelling agents for new building materials.

Liquid Soaps: Castille and other liquid soaps use Hydroxyethyl Cellulose as a thickening ingredient. By adjusting the HEC concentration used, the viscosity of the soap solution can be altered. Additionally, it supports the development of both small and large bubbles and aids in lather formation.
