Young Chemist Carbopol 940 is a cosmetic chemical widely used in the formulation of various personal care products. It is an acrylic acid polymer that acts as a thickening and suspending agent, providing viscosity and stability to a wide range of cosmetic formulations. Here's some information on its description, benefits, how to use, and cautions:

Carbopol 940 is a white, fluffy, and odorless powder. It is insoluble in water but can swell and disperse easily in water or alcohol-based solutions. It has excellent thickening and suspending properties, making it ideal for creating gels, creams, lotions, and other cosmetic products.

  1. Preparing Carbopol Gel: Sprinkle Carbopol 940 gradually into room temperature water or alcohol while stirring. Allow it to swell and disperse completely for several hours or overnight.
  2. Incorporating into Formulations: Once the gel is formed, it can be added to the oil or water phase of a formulation. Mix thoroughly until the desired consistency is achieved.
  3. Adjusting pH: Carbopol 940 works best in a slightly acidic environment (pH range of 5.0-8.0). Adjust the pH if necessary using a suitable pH adjuster, such as citric acid or sodium hydroxide.
  1. Thickening Agent: Carbopol 940 can significantly increase the viscosity of cosmetic formulations, allowing for better texture, spreadability, and stability.
  2. Suspension Agent: It helps suspend solid particles and pigments evenly throughout a product, preventing them from settling at the bottom.
  3. Gel Formation: Carbopol 940 is particularly effective in creating clear and stable gels, providing a desirable consistency and appearance.
  4. Enhanced Product Performance: By improving the rheological properties of cosmetic products, Carbopol 940 enhances their overall performance and user experience.
  1. Safety Measures: When handling Carbopol 940, wear appropriate protective equipment, including gloves and goggles, to avoid direct contact with eyes, skin, or inhalation of the powder.
  2. Inhalation Hazard: Avoid breathing in the dust or aerosolized particles of Carbopol 940, as it may cause respiratory irritation. Work in a well-ventilated area or use respiratory protection if necessary.
  3. Skin Sensitization: Some individuals may be sensitive to Carbopol 940. Conduct a patch test before applying it to a larger area of the skin to check for any adverse reactions.
  4. Storage: Keep Carbopol 940 in a tightly closed container, away from moisture and excessive heat. Store it in a cool, dry place.

Note: The above information is a general guideline. Always refer to the specific instructions, safety data sheet, and regulatory guidelines provided by the manufacturer for the particular Carbopol 940 product you are using.
