      What we do

      Cosphatec takes care of skin tolerance and of nature at the same time. We use bio-degradable raw materials that are derived from sustainable and natural sources. These are all tested according to the highest German quality standards to guarantee the best possible effect on the skin.

      All of our raw materials are vegan and do not contain any GMO.
      The core products are approved by COSMOS and we source our palm oil strictly following RSPO standards.
      All Cosphatec raw materials reliably cover the essential needs of cosmetic formulators: microbial stability, antioxidative stability as well as stability for emulsions and viscosity.

      Benefit from natural stability for modern cosmetics!

      Natural Thickening & Gelling Agents


      In the eyes of formulators, we offer the best xanthan gums on the market. All natural and vegan, highly transparent, highly stable and easy to disperse with exceptional rheologic behaviour. Cosphaderm® Xanthan Gums have an excellent impact on sensory profiles without causing any sticky feeling. Replace carbomers and avoid microplastics with a natural and vegan gelling agent – Cosphaderm® KG is your ideal choice for the best viscosity increasing material that nature offers.

      Cosphaderm® X soft

      Cosphaderm® X soft is a natural, NON GMO and vegan, transparent xanthan gum produced by fermentation of glucose or sucrose by the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris. The heteropolysaccharide complies with food as well as pharma requirements and is used as a high-viscosity-yield thickening agent with great tolerance for salts, acids and temperature. It does not impact the taste, colour or odour of the product and efficiently stabilizes cosmetic o/w-emulsions by preventing fusion of oil droplets. Cosphaderm® X soft is less stringy due to its reduced pseudoplasticity, resulting in the novel and extremely soft feel of the formulation.
