Sclerotium gum is produced by aerobic fermentation of sugar with the fungus Sclerotium rolfii. Composed of non-ionic sugar monomers, in solution the sclerotium form a triple helix. Cold soluble, it’s an ideal nature-derived thickener & stabilizer for formulations with smooth & soft texture.
FiberDesign™ Sensation, a powerful duo made of Citrus peel fibers and Sclerotium gum, is able to texture and stabilize emulsion for skincare. It’s obtained through a patented physical process and is of 100% natural origin and biodegradable.
