Project Description

VEEGUM® K

It provides good suspension at low viscosity while having low acid demand and high electrolyte and acid compatibility. This grade is well suited for acidic pH pharmaceutical suspensions and hair care formulas containing conditioning agents. Veegum® K is a taste masking agent for bitter APIs, suspension stabilizer, emulsion optimizer and rheology modifier. It also reduces the slippery or sticky feel of gums and polymers, while providing a silky, tack-free feel in topical preparations. This smectite clay is synergistic with common thickeners such as Vanzan® NFC (Xanthan Gum), Biopol® (Carbomers) and Sodium CMC.
