Carbomer is a general term for a class of acrylic acid polymers. They are also known commonly as acrylic acid or poly-acrylic acid. Carbomers are an important ingredient in many cosmetic and personal care products. They are known to be a gelling agent, viscosity-controlling, and help to form and stabilize emulsions.

Carbomers are perhaps most famously used as the super-absorber ingredient in disposable diapers, as they increase almost 1000 times their size when dispersed in water. They are also found in shampoos, skin creams, and in pharmaceutical gels and ointments. When used in recommended percentages, these substances safe to humans because they do not penetrate the skin.
