Cationic guar gum is a modified, naturally derived (from the seeds of the guar plant cyampopis tetragonolobus) quaternary, high-molecular weight sugar polymer (polysaccharide) combining both thickening and conditioning effects. Yellowish powder, faint characteristic odor. Soluble in water. Dissolve in water and stir thoroughly. Guar gum has a high pH >9 in order to thicken the solution that contains the guar gum the pH has to be <7. Add a tiny amount of citric acid or concentrated lemon juice to reach a lower pH and the solution is thickening.Effective non-gelling thickener, viscosity, volume & foam enhancer. As compared to normal guar gum, cationic guar gum has additional conditioning effect due to the quaternary polymer structure.
