High efficacy and robustness in harsh environments

Exilva, Borregaard’s Microfibrillar Cellulose (MFC), is a highly efficient multifunctional ingredient, from a completely natural source. When introducing Exilva to your liquid laundry and household products, you will experience its ability to stabilize emulsions, avoiding settling and syneresis, and improving rheology behaviour.

Exilva’s pseudoplastic characteristics when put under shear stress, combined with its very rapid viscosity build-up when shear is removed provide you with a highly versatile product. Exilva also demonstrates high efficacy and robustness in harsh environments, such as low and high pH.

Exilva in HI&I systems

Exilva can for instance be used in:

  • Liquid laundry
  • Fabric softeners
  • Household chemicals


  • Increases ability to control flow of finished products - strong shear thinning and fast viscosity recovery
  • Improves stability – improves dispersion and stabilization of particles
  • Highly versatile and readily activated for use
  • Completely natural and infinitely sustainable – improves your environmental profile
  • Ability to partly replace surfactants

What to get from Exilva in HI&I:


High Yield Stress

High yield stress giving improved stability of water borne or polar solvent systems at low shear


Pronounced Shear Thinning

Extreme shear thinning with very fast viscosity recovery provides benefits during applying of water borne or polar solvent systems


High Surface Area

Very high surface area provides substantial binding benefits and film forming of high strength films
