Our extensive research and study help us to offer the best quality pharmaceutical chemicals like Cetamacragol 1000. In chemical terms it is defined as a non-ionic surfactant of the polyethylene glycol family and is widely implemented as an emulsifying agent and solubilizer. This chemical also acts as an O/W emulsifier for wetting agent in sticks and creams/lotions. With the help of our skilled pharmacist, we formulate Cetamacragol 1000 using best grade chemicals.
This chemical is often used as an ointment base in following industries:
Cetomacrogol 1000 is the tradename for polyethylene glycol hexadecyl ether, which is nonionic surfactant produced by the ethoxylation of cetyl alcohol to give a material with the general formula HO(C2H4O)nC16H33. Several grades of this material are available depending on the level of ethoxylation performed, with repeat units (n) of polyethylene glycol varying between 2 and 20.
If n=20 it is named Brij58. If n=10, it is named Brij56.
It is used as a solubilizer and emulsifying agent in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, often as an ointment base, and also as a research tool. It is used as O/W emulsifier for creams/lotions; Wetting agent in sticks; Conforms to BP specifications. Use 0.5-5%.
