This water swellable powdered gum acts as an effective thickener for products needing to build viscosity naturally. It gives a less stringy thickening effect, making it able to produce more elegant and cosmetically acceptable products.

It is used in various capacities to enhance the smooth feel or adhesion of a skin care formula; it also functions as a thickening agent, emulsifier, or stabilizer. Research shows it can deliver skin-soothing properties.

This gum can thicken in the presence of salts, surfactants, peroxide and acids.

Between 0.6-1% salt is recommended as a viscosity booster. It works between pH 3-12.  

Recommended for: Creams, lotions, gels, shampoos, body washes, depilatories and conditioners.
