New guar derivative for clear body cleansing solutions

Jaguar® SOFT is a naturally derived alternative to synthetic polymers such as polyquaternium. This guar derivative enables the formulation of crystal clear and transparent cleansing solutions such as body wash, liquid soaps, and mild baby cleansing products. Jaguar® SOFT provides high sensorial performance with creamier foam during the application, which leaves the skin soft and smooth. 

Guar splits used to produce Jaguar® SOFT are sourced from villages participating in the Sustainable Guar Initiative, a project that aims to empower farmers with tools and knowledge to cultivate the crop through good agricultural practices, resulting in more continuous and high yield production.

Formulation concept with Jaguar® SOFT: Mild body wash

To address consumers' demand for Clean Beauty and gentle cleansing, Solvay's formulators developed mild formulas that respect the integrity of the skin barrier. Delivering mildness and performance out of clear & stable formulas is usually a challenge. The combination of Mackol® CAS-100/N and Mackam® CAB 818 enables a high-foam formulation. Jaguar® SOFT, a naturally-based polymer, improves the foam  stability and elasticity, making it creamier during application.
