Verdessence™️ Glucomannan is a natural, cold processable rheology modifier that is obtained from the tuber of the Konjac plant. It forms colorless, translucent gels with low peaking. Verdessence™️ Alginate is a natural multifunctional polymer based on algae. It can be used as a rheology modifier, sensory enhancer or setting polymer. Verdessence™️ Xanthan efficiently thickens and stabilizes emulsions and surfactant-based formulations, providing excellent viscosity boosted by electrolytes like Calcium Chloride.
