Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a non-ionic cellulose derivative that is ideal for water based products like skin creams and lotions to thicken and stabilize your product.

Add gradually to the water phase of your recipe while constantly stirring to disperse evenly and prevent the formation of lumps. To fully hydrate the product you can  add  dilute sodium hydroxide to take the pH to 8 to ensure complete hydration (readjust pH later), or stick blend until full viscosity is achieved, usually 5-15 minutes.
