Our biobased structuring agent
Betafib® is a blend of 100% natural biopolymer (cellulose) and CMC (cellulose gum) and is COSMOS and ECOCERT certified. We've designed it to help stabilize your formulations, modify rheology, and suspend (encapsulated) particles.
This makes it the ideal multifunctional ingredient for many microplastic-free home care and personal care formulations, such as body washes, shampoos, creams, scouring agents, and detergents.
It's quite a challenge achieving the right properties for your formulations – a balance between stability and rheology without the use of microplastics. Our patented, 100% natural, biobased structuring agent, Betafib®, provides just that balance
In fact, we've achieved just the right combination of rheological properties (no/low shear viscosity, shear thinning, and yield point) so that your formulations become water-like, when poured or pumped, and are stabilized and homogeneous as soon as they come to rest.
