    Among these versatile offerings are the CELLOSIZE™ Texture Thickeners, renowned for their exceptional thickening capabilities and foam enhancement properties in cleansing applications.   

    One of the key strengths of the CELLOSIZE™ line lies in its unique rheological properties. The CELLOSIZE™ HEC thickeners, for instance, modestly stabilize foam by increasing the rheology in the foam lamellae, allowing formulators to achieve desired consistencies and textures. Additionally, these thickeners boast a high tolerance to salt when compared to other water-soluble cellulose derivatives, making them an ideal choice for formulations that require salt stability. 

    Beyond their functional excellence, CELLOSIZE™ products are celebrated for their environmental sustainability. Many of these solutions are derived from renewable and biodegradable sources, aligning with Dow's commitment to promoting a circular economy and reducing the company's environmental footprint.

    Dow prides itself on being more than just a supplier – it is a trusted partner dedicated to supporting its customers' success. Dow's team of technical experts works closely with formulators, providing valuable insights, guidance, and customized solutions to address their unique challenges and requirements.
