A natural polysaccharide that thickens formulas and helps keep them stable.
Type of Ingredient
Why we use it
Xanthan gum is used in small amounts to thicken formulas, turning water into gel. This also helps with emulsions like lotions and creams, giving them a little more stability so they don’t separate like salad dressing.
