Abstract:

As an important component of toothpaste, the binder plays the functions of suspension, thickening and assignment in the paste, and its performance is of great importance to the quality of the paste. Carrageenan not only has excellent salt-resistance and enzyme resistance, but also can enhance and improve the thixotropy and dispersibility of the paste; after compounding with CMC, the stability of the toothpaste is improved, and it is an ideal binder for drug toothpaste whose formulation structure is complicated and difficult to stabilize.
