Clearthix® S


Cellulose Gum, Algin

Clearthix® S is a versatile, cost effective, transparent water thickener based on Cellulose gum and Alginate; it creates smooth textures with flow and moisturising properties. It can be used at room temperature as a viscosity modifier.

  • Transparent general thickener for use on its own or in emulsions
