Croda Inc. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

CROTHIX™ is a high performance thickener developed for aqueous surfactant systems. As a complex high molecular weight ester, CROTHIX is truly multi-functional. Not only is it superior as a thickener, but it is also effective as a diethanolamide (DEA) replacement and a mitigator of irritation. As a thickener, CROTHIX is efficient as well as effective, producing substantial viscosity even at low levels. As a DEA replacement, the product is a safe alternative providing similar viscosity and foam stabilization. As a mitigator of irritation, it is a viable means of lowering the irritancy potential of the surfactant system itself.
