CP Kelco Offers New Xanthan Gum

December 9, 2005

CP Kelco offers Keltrol CG-SFT, a xanthan gum grade providing especially smooth flow. It is designed to have low extensional viscosity, thus preventing any perception of stringiness, for example in sun care products. These benefits come in addition to other typical properties of xanthan gum, such as stability, when exposed to the high salt levels and range of temperatures likely to be encountered at the seaside, compatibility with a wide range of ingredients, excellent suspension stability and pseudoplasticity characteristics.
Personal care and cosmetics applications include shower gels, liquid soaps, lotions and creams, foams, sunscreens, hair care products, eye makeup and foundation, and face masks and packs.
