The foolproof gelling agent

VIEW VIDEO

SILIGEL™ is a gelling agent providing an amazing silicone-like skin feel and a high resistance to electrolytes, thanks to its patented synergistic combination of phospholipids and polysaccharides. Designed to revolutionize the use of gums, Siligel™ is easy-to-use as it does not require pre-dispersion even in a cold process as opposed to gelling gums. The versatility of Siligel™ leads to several applications (gelling agent, stabilizer, co-emulsifier, suspending agent). Particularly resistant to a high amount of electrolytes, Siligel™ is the natural solution to easily create robust formulations with no compromise between efficiency and aesthetics!
