VANATURAL® bentonite is pure natural bentonite clay for animal care formulations. It is also suitable for use in topical and cleansing preparations that are marketed as organic or containing organic ingredients.
VEEGUM® magnesium aluminum silicate products are natural smectite clays that have been water-washed to optimize purity and performance. These clays are used to stabilize suspensions and emulsions, and to optimize the flow properties of aqueous compositions. These benefits are also present in synergistic combinations with organic gums, such as VANZAN® xanthan gum, and polymeric thickeners.
VANZAN xanthan gum is a polysaccharide that is widely used as a rheology control agent for aqueous systems. It increases viscosity, helps to stabilize emulsions, and prevents the settling of solids in a wide variety of applications.
