It is an ideal thickening polymer for personal care formulas bearing naturality, biodegradability and/or ethical claims. Jaguar® HP-8 COS SGI is classified as inherently ultimately biodegradable following the “Beauty Biodeg Score” from Solvay, a reliable and easy to understand scale measuring the level of biodegradability of beauty care ingredients. Jaguar® HP-8 COS SGI hydrates very quickly in cold water, making it an excellent choice for powder-to-liquid cleansers. It can also be used to stabilize the viscosity of hair conditioners & hair treatments formulas. It contributes to the care benefits delivered to hair & skin products.
