INGREDIENT GLOSSARY • Thickener
AT A GLANCE
A natural polysaccharide that thickens formulas and helps keep them stable.
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.
