Item # 1191, Polyethylene 100

INCI Name: Polyethylene

CAS Numbers: 9002-88-4


Polyethylene 100 is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of long hydrocarbon chains. Depending on the crystallinity and molecular weight, a melting point and glass transition may or may not be observable. The temperature at which these occur varies strongly with the type of polyethylene.

Polyethylene 100 is widely used in shampoos and body cleansers because they are effective at mixing with oil and dirt which allows the oil and dirt to be easily washed away. Also it is often used in lotion bubble baths and creams as an emulsifier. Its primary use is in packaging products such as plastic bags, plastic films, geomembranes, and plastic containers.
