Ecogel™

The First Natural Gelling-Emulsifying Agent

ECOGEL™ is the first gelling-emulsifying agent Ecocert registered. It increases the viscosity and the stability of formulas. Easy-to-use, ECOGEL™ is compatible with electrolytes and is stable over a wide range of pH. Especially designed for the formulation of gel-creams, it provides a silicone-like skin feel with a cool, soft and non-greasy sensation.
