JAGUAR C-162 is a high molecular weight, medium degree of substitution cationic derivative of hydroxypropyl guar with moderate aqueous viscosity. It provides thickening with hair and skin conditioning effects and is particularly suited for transparent formulations. Note: Viscosity develops immediately after JAGUAR C-162 has been dispersed into water under stirring and adjusted to a slightly acidic pH.

Solvay’s proprietary Jaguar line of modified natural polymers are an evolving line of powdered natural derivatives covering functions as diverse as hair conditioning, active delivery, formulation thickening, and skin feel.

Jaguar® C 162 is a unique double-derivatized guar that is suitable for transparent formulations, providing good conditioning to moderately damaged hair, with a nude feel. Combined with oils, esters and silicones in either clear or opaque formulas, it can address damaged to over-processed hair.

Sustainable guar sourcing for a better life

Since 2015, Solvay’s Sustainable Guar Initiative has aimed to empower farmers with tools and knowledge for cultivating their crops. The program includes  training in climate-smart agricultural practices to improve and stabilize guar yield and increase soil fertility. It also allows an overall improvement in climate preparedness and the region’s resilience.

Our program improves the livelihood of guar bean farmers by ensuring income durability and protecting local resources while considering the impact climate change has on their activities.
