Archroma introduces Mowiplus® HPC 9600, a new thickener for sanitizing gels to address global shortage due to COVID-19 crisis.

Hand sanitizers are typically made of alcohol and additives, to which a thickener is often added to create the gel texture.

Gel sanitizers are considered more user-friendly than liquids, as they avoid spilling and thus wasting the precious sanitizer material that is in critical need for the fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

The thickener typically used for hand sanitizing gels and other home care and personal care products, is currently in global shortage due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Experts from the Archroma team in Brazil, anticipating shortages just as they had happened during previous outbreaks such as H1N1, decided to look into the matter.

The result is Mowiplus® HPC 9600, an alternative that offers good performance and cost levels, and even allows to skip the 12-hours hydration process needed traditionally, thus saving valuable time in a crisis that need all the sanitizers it can get.

With Mowiplus® HPC 9600, Archroma will be able to contribute to the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus, and delivers a product that helps to make a more convenient end-product, and to preserve every drop of precious hand sanitizers.

Because it’s our nature.

The new product is listed in the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) and meets the July 2016 RDC N°83 ANVISA / MERCOSUL Technical Regulation for personal hygiene products, cosmetics and perfumes.

Mowiplus® HPC 9600 is currently available in Brazil.
