Carbopol® Aqua SF-3 polymer

INCI Name: Acrylates Copolymer

Carbopol® Aqua SF-3 polymer is a novel, liquid, acrylic rheology modifier for high clarity, water-thin, surfactant formulations that provides elegant flow, and suspension of aqueous insoluble ingredients. In addition, this rheology modifier has broad compatibility with packaging dispensers.


  • Builds formulations that have exceptional suspension power, enabling striking visuals and other benefits
  • Compatible with anionic, cationic, amphoteric and nonionic surfactants for broad application fit
  • Easy-to-use liquid that is cold processable enabling flexible processing requirements
  • Enhances pearlization appearance to improve the visual appeal of pearlizing additives in surfactant-based systems
  • Low relative viscosity and high yield value
  • Provides exceptional suspending and stabilizing properties in surfactant-based systems, even low viscosity formulations
  • Suspends and stabilizes beads, microcapsules and exfoliants while maintaining product stability
