Xanthan Gum is essentially a sugar formed from bacteria (mostly found on cabbages) via fermentation, then dried into a powder. Playing a significant role, xanthan gum is used as a thickening agent in a wide range of skin care products from cleansers and serums to body lotions.  The natural gum provides the desired texture needed to allow for a smooth and even-spreading lotion.

 Acting as a natural preservative, xanthan gum can enhance the quality of your skin care and offer a longer shelf life. Its natural elements are thought to have hydrating benefits for your skin and is highly sought after for use in organic skin care products.  Therefore, becoming one of the most popular gums used in cosmetics.

Xanthan Gum also aids in stabilizing the oil droplets when added to Oil-in-water emulsions.

How to use: Mix Xanthan Gum to a smooth paste with glycerine before adding slowly to the water phase.
