Jean-Claude Tur

CEO, Caragum International

Caragum International® is an expert in vegetal texturizer for the food and cosmetic industries. Our mission is to provide formulators with solutions in response to consumers’ search for naturalness. The solution is the POLYNAT T11, a vegetal texturizer.

POLYNAT T11 is an exudate obtained from the mucilaginous sap of the Astragalus Gummifer, the majority of which is produced in Minor Asia. The roots and lower stems of this bushyshrub are split. Immediately the Gum is harvested from April to September in the form of ribbons, then pulverized into a fine powder. In short, it is a 100% natural texturizer.

The POLYNAT T11 is a 100% plant-based mixed gum consisting of a water-soluble fraction (tragacanthin) and an insoluble fraction (bassorin). This unique and innovative mixed conformation gives its texturizing and co-emulsifying properties that act in synergy to perfectly stabilize a multitude of galenics.
