The KELTROL® CG Family of Xanthan Gum
CP Kelco offers a range of biopolymers to thicken, suspend and stabilize emulsions and other water-based systems. The KELTROL® CG (cosmetic grade) line of xanthan gum products can be used to modify the texture of personal care products and to stabilize suspensions, oil-in-water emulsions and foams against separation. Creams and lotions made with KELTROL CG products provide lubricity, uniform spreading, and a pleasant, light skin feel, even in the presence of salts or other ionic components.
The KELTROL CG Xanthan Gum is produced by a fermentation process using the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris. The composition and structure of xanthan gum produced by commercial fermentation is identical to the naturally occurring polysaccharide formed by Xanthomonas campestris on plants belonging to the cabbage family. Process control and rigorous quality standards throughout production guarantee consistent, reliable product performance.
CP Kelco cosmetic grade products have low bacterial plate counts, making them suitable for use in a wide variety of cosmetic and personal care applications. All KELTROL CG grades are tested to ensure compliance with the purity criteria defined in the monographs for xanthan gum in the current editions of the US Pharmacopoeia/National Formulary, Japanese Pharmaceutical Excipients and European Pharmacopoeia.
