INCI: Xanthan Gum
Xanthan Gum is a polysaccharide derived from the fermentation of glucose or corn syrup and is used in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products most commonly as an emulsion stabiliser or thickener.Xanthan gum produces a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid with the addition of a very small amount of gum. Generally 1%, but as little as 0.1% can be used in many applications. Xanthan Gum is an excellent natural source thickener for lotions, creams, liquid soap, shower gels, body washes and shampoos.
Great and easy to use, would recommend using a blender to make gel or lotion smooth
Good product performed well for incorporating into o/w creams as a viscosity modifier.
Would be great if I could source a transparent version of xanthan gum for clear serums and clear shampoo products.
