Description: Cationic guar gum is a modified, naturally derived (from the seeds of the guar plant cyampopis tetragonolobus) quaternary, high-molecular weight sugar polymer (polysaccharide) combining both thickening and conditioning effects. Yellowish powder, faint characteristic odor. Soluble in water.

CAS: 65497-29-2

INCI Name: Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride

  • Effective non-gelling thickener and viscosity enhancer
  • Can boost foam when together with surfactants
  • Has additional conditioning effect due to the quaternary polymer structure as compared to regular guar gum

Use: Dissolve in water and stir thoroughly. Guar gum has a high pH >9 in order to thicken the solution that contains the guar gum the pH has to be <7. Add a tiny amount of citric acid or concentrated lemon juice to reach a lower pH and the solution is thickening. Stir well, typical use level is 0.2-2%. For external use only.

Applications: Shampoos, conditioners, lotions, creams, body washes, shower gels.
