Winner of the Innovation Zone Award 2021 – Silver Prize for Functional Ingredients at the In-Cosmetics® trade show held in Korea.

KELCO-CARE™ Diutan Gum helps formulators develop next-level, nature-based skin care, sun care, cosmetics and hair care formulations including conditioners and hair color. It thickens, suspends and stabilizes across a wide pH range at low use levels. Compatible with polyols and alcohol, it delivers a silky, sensory experience with smoothing and conditioning benefits to your applications.

Suitable for vegan formulations, KELCO-CARE™ Diutan Gum is a nature-based ingredient obtained by the age-old process of fermentation. Its high efficiency is due to high pseudoplasticity with a low shear rate and yield. In addition, it is easy to disperse and cold-processable. This versatile rheology modifier also provides excellent stabilization across a wide range of temperatures. Properties can be boosted with the addition of salt.

KELCO-CARE™ Diutan Gum is exclusively distributed by The Lubrizol Corporation worldwide.
