Two Solutions to Thicken Your Base Formulation

Seppic has two new products that will help thicken your surfactant base formulations, Solagum™ AX and SEPIMAX™ Zen. These are two multifunctional products that will help with thickening, emulsifying and stabilizing your formulation.

Solagum™ AX*

Acacia Senegal Gum & Xanthan Gum

Natural plant-based thickening polymer, easy to use – no neutralization needed – perfect to achieve bio-based products.

Properites of Solagum™ AX

Multifunctional: thickening, emulsifying and stabilizing

Ready-to-use: powder that dissolves in hot or cold water (or oil),
faster than xanthan gum

Wide pH range stability: 3-12

Excellent resistance to electrolytes

Forms clear aqueous gels

Good particle suspension power

Textures of fluid to medium consistencies

Compatible with solvents, surfactants, AHAs, H2O2

Green Labels & Biodegradability




100% Natural Origin Content according to ISO 16128

Readily Biodegradable


Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6

Produced using a disruptive innovation patented by SEPPIC, SEPIMAX ZEN™ is a next-generation thickening, stabilizing and texturizing powder polymer. It has MAXimal resistance to electrolytes and can be used to formulater with greater creativity and peace of mind. Easy-to-use pre-neutralized powder polymer, in cold or hot processes. Extreme resistance to electrolytes and low and high pH. Able to create clear-transparent formulas and stable solid suspensions.
