VEEGUM® Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
VEEGUM® CH Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
VEEGUM CH is a versatile water-washed natural smectite clay for personal care formulations. Like all VEEGUM clay products, VEEGUM CH is strongly synergistic with common thickeners such as VANZAN® Xanthan Gum and CMC.
VEEGUM® K Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
Provides good suspension at low viscosity. It has low acid demand and high acid and electrolyte compatibility. It is used in acid pH pharmaceutical suspensions and in hair care formulas containing conditioning agents. VEEGUM K is USP/NF Magnesium Aluminum Silicate Type IIA.
VEEGUM® HV Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
A higher viscosity grade used in pharmaceutical suspensions, topical emulsions and other personal care products. VEEGUM HV is USP/NF Magnesium Aluminum Silicate Type IC.
VEEGUM® HS Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
Provides maximum electrolyte stability and minimum acid demand. It is used in acid pH pharmaceutical suspensions, in hair care formulas containing conditioning agents, and in face masks. Its relatively low viscosity contribution allows it to be used at levels high enough to enhance skin cleansing. VEEGUM HS is Purified Bentonite N.F.
VEEGUM® D Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
The preferred dentifrice binder because it ensures a stable and short paste or gel, regardless of temperature, with excellent brush stand-up, flavor release and rinseability. It works synergistically with organic gum binders, allowing the fine-tuning of dentifrice properties with minimal inhibition of fluoride recovery. The incorporation of soluble pyrophosphate with VEEGUM D maximizes fluoride bioavailability.
VEEGUM® R Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
The original and most widely used grade. It is used in all types of cosmetics and personal care products. VEEGUM R is USP/NF Magnesium Aluminum Silicate Type IA.
