Xanthan gum is a natural thickener used in food and cosmetics. It is used as an emulsion stabilizer, thickening and gelling agent.
Xanthan Gum Plus is a cosmetic grade Xanthan Gum which has been especially fermented for the demands of Cosmetic production, giving it a lower micron count (80), which leads to clearer formulations and better stability than standard Xanthan gum. Our Xanthan gum Plus is especially suited to Cosmetic use as the thickening is stable and temperature resistant.
Also Xanthan gum Plus thickens with ease and blends well with other surfactants, emulsifiers, essential oils, fragrances, colourings and helps suspend particles. The particle suspension ability, makes Xanthan Gum Plus especially useful for exfoliant formulations.
Usage: between 0.1% and 0.5%. ( Add to water phase.).
TIP: The easiest and most effective way of adding Xanthan gum to an emulsion is by premixing in our vegetable glycerine, where it will make a paste that can easily be dispersed into water. Xanthan Gum is resistant to heat, so can then be heated and combined with oil.
NOTE: Xanthan Gum will continue to thicken over the following days after manufacture. The final thickness of the Xanthan Gum based product will be heavily influenced by the amount of shear that the product has been subject to in manufacture. The greater the shear the thinner the final consistency will be.
