Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating Cationic guar gum in face and body wash

  • Cationic guar gum in face and body wash

    Posted by abdullah on December 29, 2021 at 1:11 pm

    I want to make a face and body wash line that has 0.2% guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride to reduce irritation, increase viscosity and foam. We have use the sample for less than a month with no problem, but i am not sure about long term effect on face and body.

    My questions are

    1. Do you advice to add 0.2% guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride in face and body wash or not? 

    2. Any idea about long term effect or any negative skin feel?

    That level is fine for hair or skin

    Polyquaternium-7 or 39 are more commonly used in face wash. The latter gives a slightly more squeaky-clean feel.
    Cationic stuff binds to skin less than hair. It shouldn’t be causing problems.

    Thanks. 

    In order to reduce the cost i am purchasing in a bit higher quantities (25kg or more) so if i could use one ingredients in many products that would be very good. 
    I am already using cationic guar in shampoo and have stock of it.
