Siligel – sophisticated and highly effective gelling and thickening agent
INCI: Lecithin (and) Sclerotium gum (and) Xanthan gum (and) Pullulan
The thickening properties of Siligel™ are due to the synergistic polysaccharide combination of xanthan gum and sclerotium gum.
at >0.5% Siligel will acts as a co-emulsifier to a primary emulsifier providing stability to your emulsions
Skin feel enhancer:
Siligel™ offers emulsions an exceptional light feel and a good spreadability close to silicone, due to the synergistic combination with pullulan. Compared to classical natural gelling agents, Siligel™ provides good advantages: lower picking and resilience. Moreover, resulting textures are as sophisticated as the ones obtained with synthetic gelling agents.
Improves skin penetration of other actives in the formulation
Siligel™ is stable within a wide range of pH, from 3 to 10.
Siligel™ supports high quantity of electrolytes (up to 2%).
Siligel™ is compatible with surfactants. It is particularly interesting for a use in shampoos and shower gels since it increases viscosity and improves sensorial properties.
Siligel™ is compatible with most preservatives and additives.
