Description

Sclerotium gum is a nonionic stabilizing and gelling agent that is a 100% polysaccharide of natural origin. Sclerotium gum is highly resistant to chemical and physical stresses, and it is compatible with the vast majority of other cosmetic raw materials. In emulsions, it forms a gel network around oily droplets, effectively preventing them from joining together to ensure emulsion stability over time.

Vegan suitable.
