Our smart and natural thickeners SOLAGUM™
November 11, 2020
Consumers are actively looking for natural, non-toxic products, with total traceability but at the same time are not willing to compromise on the efficiency, stability or even the texture of the products!
That’s why we came up with these two natural thickeners below, that not only are performant (thicken,stabilize formulas, emulsify oils, resist electrolytes and other stressful conditions,...) but also improve the texture and skin feel of natural personal care products, for an enhanced consumer experience.
INCI: Acacia Senegal Gum & Xanthan Gum
100% natural origin content (ISO 16128), readily biodegradable, Cosmos and Ecocert approved, China compliant.
SOLAGUM™ AX is obtained from a unique and innovative manufacturing process in which the Acacia gum coats the Xanthan gum, in an optimized ratio.
The xanthan gum, very popular in natural formulations, is a natural polysaccharide produced by a bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris.
The acacia gum is a natural ramified polysaccharides extracted from the sap of Senegalese Acacia tree, and sustainably sourced to produce SOLAGUM™ AX. It’s composed of polysaccharides and glycoproteins, giving it emulsifying properties.
Although very efficient to thicken and stabilize formulations, the xanthan gum alone can bring a clumpy look and some stringiness and tackiness when used in beauty products. That’s why we coated it with acacia gum in SOLAGUM™ AX: for both performance and benefits!

INCI: Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum
100% bio-based, Cosmos and Ecocert approved, China compliant.
SOLAGUM™ TARA is extracted from the seeds of Tara spinosa, a small leguminous tree, thorny shrub, native to Peru.
It produces flat long pods containing the seeds rich in galactomannan polysaccharides (Tara Gum): made of mannose and galactose, similar to the main components found in guar and locust bean gums, but in a different ratio, for hybrid properties and a smoother and more natural flow! 
Ideal for medium to thick viscosity products!
