Glucamate™ LT thickener is a vegetable-derived, highly effective associative thickener. Being a low viscosity liquid, it can be used in cold processing.

This versatile nonionic thickener is compatible with most ingredients used in today's liquid surfactant systems. Glucamate LT thickener is cost-effective and provides additional benefits such as broad surfactant compatibility and a reduction in the irritation associated with surfactants. This thickener also provides luxurious sensory properties through the retention of foaming properties and a light, emollient afterfeel.

The easy pump viscosity of Glucamate LT thickener overcomes the drawbacks associated with other vegetable-derived liquid thickeners on the market which are highly viscous and difficult to pump and process in the manufacturing environment.
