Features of Crysto Cellulose

High Tg

Crysto has a high glass transition temperature, connoting a reversible transition in amorphous materials from a hard and relatively brittle "glassy" state into a viscous or rubbery state as the temperature is increased

Highly Crystalline

Crysto is a highly crystalline solid that is resistant to temperature and moderate acidic/basic conditions providing a dimension of robustness to formulating 

High Modulus

Crystalline cellulose has a theoretical modulus significant greater than glass, and as an incompressible solid, Crysto has the potential to offer reinforcing benefits in some applications

Water binding

Small particle size couples with the hydrogen bonding tendency of crystalline cellulose, Crysto can bind/trap water at several volume multiples and retain it under aggressive conditions

Potent Emulsifier

Crysto can stabilize oil-in-water (O/W) and water-in-oil (W/O) systems by concentrating at the boundary between the two phases and providing amphiphilic behavior


Lignin has been demonstrated as a macro-antioxidant, and residual lignin content in Crysto offers radical scavenging capacity to amplify the stabilizing package

Highly adsorptive

High surface area and favorable surface chemistry that promotes hydrogen bonding offer an opportunity to use Crysto as a delivery vehicle for active ingredients


Crysto particle size ranges 0.5 to 1.5μm, which provides characteristics of both commonly known microcrystalline cellulose, and advanced nanocrystalline cellulose in parallel
