Acrylates crosspolymers are formed when C10-30 alkyl acrylates are combined with monomers of acrylic acid or methacrylic acid. In Europe and the UK, acrylates crosspolymers are also called 'carbopol', co-polymer or 'carbomer'. However, the generally accepted INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) designation identifies the substances as "acrylates cross-polymers".
