Fermentation-Derived Cellulose (FDC)
Fermentation-Derived Cellulose (FDC) is our biodegradable and eco-friendly product that is ideal for use in Fabric Care, Home Care and Personal Care applications. Its unique cellulose structure creates invisible a 3-D reticulated network which has excellent functionality even in high surfactant or non-aqueous systems. The uniqueness of FDC’s reticulated network provides suspension without additional viscosity for particulates such as decorative micro beads, encapsulated fragrance or encapsulated enzymes.
FDC is very versatile and retains its functional characteristics over a very wide pH range, under challenging temperature, and is compatible with salt and enzymes. Its low use levels make it a cost-effective option and enables differentiated offering. Microbial fermentation process using nature derived ingredients creates a distinct advantage and supports attributes of being eco friendly and sustainable!
Uses for Fermentation-Derived Cellulose (FDC)
Our Fermentation-Derived Cellulose (FDC) Products
An eco-friendly product derived from microbial fermentation that is functional in high surfactant systems without degrading over time. It provides reliable suspension without impacting viscosity or dispersibility.
ARBALON® Cellulose Liquid, is an eco-friendly alternative derived from a microbial fermentation process. This pre-activated ready-to-use cellulose liquid stabilizes in a wide range of surfactant-based formulations with functionality at typical rates of 0.5-5.0% to create clear to translucent systems.
