Microcrystalline Cellulose & Carboxymethyl Cellulose Sodium IP/USP

MICCEL – CMC

Solution for Suspensions, Lotions and Creams

  1. Suspension : As suspending agent for readily constitutable suspension Absence of sedimentation in some of formulation.
  2. Lotion : As oil/water emulsifier for lotions and creams
  3. Creams : Emulsion Stabilizer and thickener with opacifier for creams and gels.

MICCEL CMC is the mixture of microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethyl cellulose Sodium various ratio depend on application.
