Triethanolamine is frequently used with gelling agent Carbopol Ultrez 20 in place of a lye solution, neutralizing the liquid to enable it to thicken to a gel. To use simply wait until the TC-Carbomer has been absorbed by the liquid, then use equal parts Triethanolamine (slightly less than equal is recommended) and stir gently to activate. Within an hour the liquid should be much more viscous, waiting longer will produce a stiffer, better result.
Triethanolamine is an organic compound derived from ammonia that is used as an alkalizing agent to adjust the ph of cosmetic products.
