Huber’s impact on personal care
Into the shower
CP Kelco makes bath time better with KELTROL® CG xanthan gum. It helps your favorite body wash flow smoothly and creates a rich lather.
New in-shower innovations become spa-like indulgences, thanks to KELCOGEL® gellan gum. It easily suspends soothing fragrance beads and body exfoliators to cleanse, nourish and moisturize baby-soft skin.
Huber is here for your hair too. Shampoos and conditioners are turning into multitasking, in-shower stylers with GENUVISCO® carrageenan. In addition to cleansing, it helps added lipids and proteins penetrate to enhance hair texture, boost body and add shine. So, those of us with less time to primp can have more good hair days ahead.
After breakfast, it’s time to brush your teeth. CP Kelco’s naturally derived CEKOL® cellulose gum (CMC), KELDENT® xanthan gum and GENUVISCO carrageenan make us smile. In addition to helping your toothpaste keep its shape and flavor, it’s suspending new whiteners, brighteners and more oral care innovation.
Skin and sun
Just a few finishing touches before you’re ready to face the day. Huber’s ingredients can affect a product’s flow, thickness and texture, making them perfect for lotions, sunscreens and cosmetics. KELTROL CG xanthan gum prevents mascara from clumping, while GENU® pectin is great in aftershave lotions and gels.
Sunny day out? Huber has you covered. For sprayable sunscreens, KELCOGEL gellan gum keeps the liquid from separating in the bottle and also ensures a wide and even spray pattern.
Huber helps make you look better. From head to toe, our vast ingredient choices enable any personal care concept to become a consumer product, meeting our customers’ needs—and yours.
