Kelco-Care diutan gum is a microbial polysaccharide produced by fermentation and described as an ideal stabilizer for formulations. Additional benefits identified include: a moisturizing effect that reportedly lasts all day long for multifunctional skin care; stability at high temperature, maintaining the viscosity of sunscreens; and strong pigment suspension capabilities, to meet the natural-derived makeup demand.

“Our team of researchers and scientists continue to look for new ways to enhance our nature-based ingredients to meet sustainability goals and consumer expectations,” said Maxime Fougere, global marketing manager of LLS Beauty. “We’re excited to have found new benefits for Kelco-Care diutan gum that meet these needs.”
