We are one of the most prominent organizations engaged in offering Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (Sodium CMC). The offered product is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups. This cellulose is used as a viscosity modifier or thickener as well as to stabilize emulsions in various products including ice cream. It is also a constituent of many non-food products like water-based paints, toothpaste, laxatives, diet pills, detergents, textile sizing, and various paper products. The major source fiber is either softwood pulp or cotton linter of this cellulose.

How does it work
Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (Sodium CMC) derivative form takes the form of beta-(1,4)-D-glucopyranose. In cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, it is used as a bulk laxative, as an emulsifier and thickener and as a stabilizer for reagents.
Applications. Or where it is used
To treat dry, itchy eyes, this medication is used. Many things cause dry eyes, including wind, sun, heat, reading on a computer, air conditioning, and certain medications.
Cellulose and chloroacetic acid are reacted through an alkali-catalyzed reaction. The polar (organic acid) carboxyl groups make the cellulose soluble and chemically reactive. After the initial reaction, the mixture produces around 60% CMC and 40% salts.
How to use
Draw a pouch by pulling down the lower eyelid as you tilt your head back. You should squeeze out 1 or 2 drops of drops or gels directly onto your eye. Spend a few minutes looking down and closing your eyes gently. Put a finger on the corner of your eye near your nose and apply gentle pressure.
Initially, Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (Sodium CMC) may cause blurred vision. Minor stinging/burning/irritation is also possible. You should speak to your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if these effects continue or worsen.
