    Formula Guidelines
    - Typical recommended dosage at 0.2~1.0 wt %. 
    - To disperse Carbomer 996 completely, it should be slowly and carefully sprinkled to dispersion medium while the mix is stirred rapidly to avoid formation of lumps; extremely high shear rate mixer should be carefully employed to avoid viscosity loss.   
    - The ideal viscosity can be achieved at pH ranges of 5.0~10.0 when neutralized; In a hydoalcoholic system, a correct neutralizer must be chosen carefully based on the amount of alcohol to be gelled.    
    After neutralization, high-shear and lasting stirring should be avoided to keep stable thickening ability.
