New Guar Derivative for Clear Body Cleansing Products

Jaguar® SOFT is a conditioning guar polymer optimized for high sensorial performance out of crystal clear or transparent body cleansing and liquid soap products. It can be easily formulated in sulfate-free, mild and baby cleansing products. Moreover, guar splits used to manufacture the Jaguar® SOFT are part of Solvay’s Sustainable Guar Initiative program. It delivers water-insoluble ingredients to the skin more efficiently than other cationic polymer technology on the market. So, Jaguar® SOFT allows the replacement of synthetic conditioning polymers such as polyquaternium to develop more environmentally-friendly formulations.  Jaguar® SOFT allows stabilizing foam making it firmer, more elastic, and contributing to also making the whole sensorial experience more pleasurable.

The recommended usage level is 0.1% - 0.3%

Jagura Soft


Jaguar® SOFT is the only in the Jaguar® range for which guar splits are sourced from villages participating in the SGI project. It provides a significant difference and improvement from a social standpoint, in many aspects. Launched in 2015, Solvay’s Sustainable Guar Initiative aims to empower farmers with tools and knowledge to cultivate the crop through good agricultural practices, resulting in more continuous, high yield production. 

As a leader in guar derivatives, we decided to build an inclusive business, involving guar farmers that are at the origin of our value chain. 80% of the world’s supply of guar comes from India and 70% of Indian guar is produced in Rajasthan. Our efforts also focus on societal inputs helping women establish kitchen gardens, providing various vegetables for their families, as well as a potential secondary income source. Furthermore, we launched a pilot to build a long term traceable supply chain which brings value to all the stakeholders, from the farmers up to the end users.
