Ashland’s Supercol Guar Rheology Modifier Earns COSMOS Certification

November 4, 2013

Ecocert has verified that Ashland Care Specialties’ Supercol GF Guar and Supercol U Guar rheology modifiers conform to its standards and those of COSMOS for natural cosmetics. The organizations certify finished personal care products as natural and organic based on the use of approved ingredients.

Supercol GF Guar and Supercol U Guar rheology modifiers are all-natural, high-purity, water-soluble guar gums that may be used to thicken personal care formulations, said the company. Supercol polymers are extracted from guar endosperm and supplied as powders of varying granulation and viscosity. Supercol GF Guar and Supercol U Guar are 100% plant-based polymers. Accordingly, they may be used in a wide range of personal care products.
