Microcrystalline Cellulose


Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) is a naturally occurring polymer consisting of glucose units linked by 1-4 beta glycosidic bonds.

In cosmetics, MCC serves multiple purposes including abrasiveness, absorption, anti-caking, viscosity enhancement in aqueous solutions, bulking, stabilization of emulsions, adjustment of slip, and texturizing. These functionalities make it a common ingredient in various hair care, skin care, and makeup products.

MCC is a valuable additive across industries such as pharmaceuticals, food, cosmetics, and others. Its suitability for different applications is determined by various properties including particle size, density, compressibility index, angle of repose, powder porosity, hydration swelling capacity, moisture sorption capacity, moisture content, crystallinity index, crystallite size, as well as mechanical properties like hardness and tensile strength.

Microcrystalline Cellulose E460 is a white powder derived from the cellulose manufacturing process using high-quality wood pulp. Registered under CAS number 9004-34-6, it exhibits rapid disintegration in water. Widely employed in medicine and food, it functions as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and binding agent in tablet formulations.
