Galactoarabinan as rheology additive
Has anybody in the forum had experience using galactoarabinan, called arabinogalactan in some quarters? Allegedly diminishes micelle size in o/w emulsions contributing to stability, SPF boost in sun-care, color deposition in hair dying. Does not appear to be expensive and is All Natural all day also. Somehow under-utilized or under-appreciated by the formulators and the Greenies. Why is this so? Electrolyte tolerant? Dispersion quality? Anything? Discuss.
