Valida S+ is a highly fibrillated cellulose that stabilizes particles in suspension and O/W emulsions without an emulsifier at low dosage with minimal viscosity impact. It is highly thixotropic with excellent shear thinning properties for suspension in sprays. Valida enables better spreadability and spray-ability without drip and provides a supreme skin sensory experience, and a unique texture in formulations while also having the capability to fill wrinkles and smooth skin with a blurring effect. The product is a multi-functional bio-based additive which can be used in aqueous systems, oil-in-water emulsions, serums, creams, as well as colored formulations.

Valida comes in the form of a gel (Valida S+ CS-3) or paste (Valida S+ CS-8) The natural cellulose of the product is the most abundant organic material on earth that is responsibly sourced from PEFC and FSC managed forests.
