HOW TO USE IT

  • You can reduce the amount of Cetearyl Alcohol in your creams when you add Cellulose to your mixture.
  • When a Cellulose Gum Gel is used in combination with 70-99% strength Isopropyl Alcohol it will create a thin clear gel which has a superior skin feel and is less drying than other hydro-alcoholic hand sanitisers.
  • Cellulose Gum can also be used as a thickener for shampoos and conditioners
  • Use 0.1-1%
  • Weigh out the Cellulose Gum and add to cold bottled spring water.
  • Stir together to mix thoroughly. Keep stirring the mixture for 20-25 minutes continuously to fully hydrate the Cellulose and form a gel. Thegel should form after about 10 minutes stirring or less but keep stirring until the 20-25 minutes has elapsed.
  • Place jug with gel in a bain-marie and heat to 70C stirring all the time.
  • Remove from heat and stir whilst cooling. As it cools slowly add the Stage 2 (heat tolerant) ingredients and stir in thoroughly between additions.
  • When below 40C add Stage 3 ingredients and stir in well between additions.
