May fail to perform when the formulations have a high content of electrolytes such as aloe vera, magnesium and potassium.
Xanthan Gum is a natural gum polysaccharide created through fermentation of sugar (glucose or sucrose) by Xanthomonas campestris bacteria.
Xanthan Gum Clear is used in cosmetics as a thickener or rheology modifier and emulsion stabilizer.
Xanthan Gum Clear in solution will have greater viscosity and clarity than our regular 200 mesh Xanthan Gum and has more stringy effect.
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.
Add to the water phase of your formulation.
Mix with glycerin (2-5%) in order to prevent clumping before adding water.
When Making Lotions, Creams, Conditioners or other products that require heating more than 60C, add this to the cool down phase (40C) of your formulation.
Clear Xanthan USP is stable from room temperature to 60C.

*A stick blender mixing will reduce the tendency of the particles to contact, and stick, to each other. If this happens, the result will be that the outside swells and prevents water from getting to the inside, resulting in swollen clumps, also referred to as 'fish eyes'. This is, sometimes, irreversible so, care should be taken to use the highest shear possible.
