Smart Natural Thickener
SOLAGUM™ AX is obtained from a unique and innovative manufacturing process in which the Acacia gum coats the Xanthan gum. The ratio of this combination has been optimized for a perfect balance between performance and texture.
As part of Seppic’s environmental commitment, the Acacia sourcing is part of a sustainable program.
SOLAGUM™ AX is a 100% natural thickening & stabilizing polymer. It is a water-soluble polymer that dissolves quickly and delivers outstanding sensoriality with a non-stringy, non-sticky & fresh aqueous sensation.
Its versatility allows it to be used in every cosmetic application, even for the most delicate zones (intimate hygiene, oral care...).
