Succinoglycan is a polymeric rheology modifier derived from the fermentation of agrobacterium tumefaciens and certified as natural. Its shear-thinning rheology and wide pH tolerance makes it an excellent choice as a stabilizer of oil-in-water formulations. Data shows that succinoglycan has synergistic thickening with acidic actives and withstands extremely low pH conditions.

It also exhibits compatibility with electrolytes and works well with other thickeners to suspend particles like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in oil-in-water systems. Unlike other natural-derived gum thickeners, succinoglycan does not leave a sticky feel on the skin and even provides a soft, velvety after-feel to oil-in-water formulations.
