Thicken with Elegance

SOLAGUM™ TARA is a pure non-ionic Tara gum with thickening capability for medium to thick consistencies. This 100% natural origin polymer is suitable to all cosmetic applications thanks to its wide compatibility with other ingredients and offers immediate hydration into water enabling cold process formulation.

Multifunctional, SOLAGUM™ TARA also texturizes, improving sensory with an elegant touch. With similar performance to HEC and a better sensory & naturality profile, SOLAGUM™ TARA is the ideal polymer to replace Hydroxyethylcellulose!

SOLAGUM™ TARA is readily biodegradable.

To remember
  1. Great thickening capability (aqueous gel 5 times more viscous than xanthan gum)
  2. Nice sensory, without stringy nor tacky effect
  3. 100 % Natural Origin Content according to ISO 16128
  4. COSMOS, NATRUE, VEGAN and HALAL certified
  5. The solution to the hair market demand by replacing HEC in hair formulation


SOLAGUM™ TARA is a polymer of choice for medium to thick consistencies in natural formulas, for boosting viscosity effect while improving naturality level and for its very nice sensory.
