Sclerotium rolfsii is a soil borne fungus that is fermented to produce Sclerotium Gum, a versatile cosmetic ingredient that can be used in a wide variety of applications. Most commonly used as a thickener or gelling agent, Sclerotium Gum has high thermal stability and can help to enhance the skins moisture barrier, preventing trans-epidermal water loss and helping to keep the skin moisturized. The use of Sclerotium Gum in your formulations will increase the stability of your lotions, creams, and gels, allowing them to maintain their viscosity even in the presence of high heat.
