Cellulose Gum/carboxymethyl ether/sodium salt

Cellulose gum is also known as carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), carboxymethyl ether as well as sodium salt and is modified cellulose polymer. 

Cellulose gum has many properties in cosmetic products. It stabilizes emulsions (the mix of oily and watery components), forms a film around hair, skin and nails, as well as it regulates the viscosity of a product. The substance is for instance used in detergents, where it counteracts the dirt setting in the clothes fibres.
