Sclerotium gum is produced by aerobic fermentation of sugar with the fungus Sclerotium rolfsii. Composed of non-ionic sugar monomers sclerotium gum forms a triple helix in solution. As a cold soluble thickener and stabilizer, sclerotium gum is an ideal nature-derived choice for formulations needing a smooth and soft texture.
Actigum™ VSX 20
INCI: Sclerotium Gum (and) Xanthan Gum
Actigum VSX 20 texturizer is a rheology modifier that builds over the well-known properties of two highly safe and nature-derived ingredients: sclerotium and xanthan gums. The combination of those two nature-derived polymers provides enhanced functional benefits, such as a high yield value resulting in good suspending properties and a higher viscosity than what can be obtained with the individual ingredients at the same dosage. This product is recommended for skin care, sun care, toiletries and hair care products.

Applications include skin care, sun care, cleansers, hair care, and color cosmetics.
