Oral hygiene over the centuries has progressed from a rudimentary powder based cleaning mechanism to a complex active based compound present in a stable situation under the influence of organic and inorganic salts. This harmony is bought about by a stabilizer like Viscarin® which FMC has been producing for over six decades. Our knowledge and expertise is varied as we tailor products to customer specifications.

This evolution was in parallel supported by innovations in packaging. Today toothpaste has the challenge to offer more sophisticated cleaning objectives, support in preventive dental hygiene and in all ensure its delivered through a packing medium that is not only functional but also cost effective.

Toothpaste system is a complex mixture of inorganic and organic compounds dissolved and suspended in a continuous phase stabilized by a hydrocolloid (Viscarin products). Viscarin products plays the key role in obtaining a rheology suitable to the given manufacturing process maintaining the product stability and providing the cosmetic characteristics demanded by the consumer.  Click here for guideline formulations and stabilizer recommendations.
