Personal and Home Care


The following properties of Tylose® are particularly significant for applications in the field of Personal and Home Care:


  • Thickening / adjustment of consistency
  • Stabilisation
  • High compatibility with other raw  materials, e.g. surfactants.

Personal Care products include all areas of nurturing and decorative cosmetics. Nurturing cosmetics include hair care, skin care and oral hygiene. Decorative cosmetics include make-up, powder, eye shadow and mascara.


In addition to the thickening effect, Tylose improves the foam stability of bubble bath, preserves moisture during a perm treatment, increases the stickiness of adhesive creams, acts as a binder in powder make-ups and eases the distribution of colouring agents in the hair.


Home Care products include all types of liquid products such as floor cleaners, detergents and dishwashing agents.


Viscous formulas or gel cleaners are particularly useful for cleaning vertical surfaces. Gel cleaners also tend to be chosen for applications where the agent will be left to work for an extended period of time. Tylose is ideal for thickening and adjusting the rheology of liquid, water-based cleaners with a pH of 4 to 11. It allows manufacturers to achieve the desired look and a specific processing consistency for their cleaning agent.
