Scope for merger with the stubby thickening? FlagSteward 12:16, 19 September 2007 (UTC)


I was shocked to discover this articel on Wikipedia. I've been in the Paint, Adhesives and Sealants industry for forty years and in reading the first paragraph of this discovered that there are seemingly professionals out there who believe that NON-AQUEOUS thickeners do not exist or play a significant role in today's world. Defining thickeners as something ONLY involving aqueous systems is egregious. Please correct this asap. (talk) 02:16, 28 March 2011 (UTC) True

Cosmetics Subsection[edit]

Hi -- I saw that the cosmetics section had a heading for needing citation. I ran across this article which seems like a potentially good source of information on the use of thickeners in cosmetics. Among other things, they discuss the use of new thickeners in new formulations of shampoos, and look at why thickeners are used (discuss the appeal to consumers). The article does not cover everything in this section of the wiki article, but may cover some of the information, and provide new material. I'm not quite sure what to add, and how to mix new ideas with old, but wanted to add this source so that someone with a better idea of what the structure of the wiki article should be could elaborate on this topic.
