VEEGUM® Ultra 

INCI Name:

Magnesium Aluminum Silicate

VEEGUM® Ultra clay is a unique acidic smectite clay. It produces dispersions in the 4.2 to 5.2 pH range, making it particularly suitable for topicals. It is especially easy to hydrate, taking no more than 15 minutes in most cases. It is whiter and brighter than other clays, which carries over to the finished formula. Typical use levels are between 0.5% and 2%. INCI Name: Magnesium Aluminum Silicate.

Because of its unique nature, VEEGUM® Ultra clay is an exception. It is relatively unaffected by changes in hydration parameters. Adequate hydration of this product will be achieved in most cases in no more than 15 minutes. Increasing mixing intensity, mixing time or water temperature will not significantly affect its degree of hydration. Some applications for this product are lotions creams, cleansers, shaving creams and liquid foundations.



Vanderbilt Minerals, LLC supplies minerals and chemicals to the Personal Care and Cosmetics industry. The smectite ores are pulverized and a proprietary water separation is used for benefication. Purified magnesium aluminum silicate is the finished product and are used in toothpastes, antacids, hand and body lotions, shampoos, soaps, makeups, cleaning compounds, thickening agents and more.
