BASF’s new rheology modifier

Newly launched by BASF Care Creations, Hydagen Clean (INCI: Glucomannan) is a natural, cold-processable rheology modifier that is obtained from the tuber of the Konjac plant. It also functions as a thickener and texturising polymer when used at levels of 0.1-2%. Applications include after-Sun treatments, colour care, styling, body cleansing, face care and hand care.

Supplied as a free-flowing, whitish powder, Hydagen Clean is a polysaccharide consisting of the monosaccharides glucose and mannose. It is suitable for aqueous systems like gels, fluids and serums as well as novel formats such as patches, jellies and peel-off formulations, the company said.

Key sustainability benefits include being 100% derived from natural, renewable feedstocks and being made via a non-GMP process, plus a good eco-toxicological profile and ready biodegradability to OECD standards. It is also approved by COSMOS.
