Seppic has revealed the effectiveness of its Solagum Tara hair care ingredient as an alternative to hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC).
Solagum Tara (INCI: Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum), derived from tara seeds, was found to demonstrate equivalent performance to HEC while offering a better profile in terms of naturalness and sensoriality.
Formulated as a rinsed hair mask, Seppic says Solagum Tara offers a smoother, more beautiful, less lumpy texture.
In a more minimalist formulation approach, Solagum Tara is also an ally of choice for hair formulations because, in addition to thickening, it plays a role in controlling volume and frizz in curly hair care, it added.
Solagum Tara is 100% natural origin according to the ISO 16128 standard and easily biodegradable according to the OECD 301F standard.
