Xanthan gum

Xanthan gum is a white powder that is produced when sugar is fermented. It is a commonly used thickening agent in cosmetics and personal care products, such as toothpaste and shampoo.

Xanthan gum is made using the fermentation bacteria Xanthomonas campestris, which is where the name of the gum comes from. Xanthan gum is a natural ingredient and is also known as E415.

What do you use Xanthan gum for?

Xanthan gum improves the spreadability of skin care products and makes other ingredients bond better. Xanthan gum helps stabilize your product, which prevents ingredients from separating again after mixing. You only need a very small amount of Xanthan gum to achieve this effect.

Xanthan gum versus Arabic gum versus Guar gum

Xanthan gum is a natural product but is often produced under controlled conditions. This ensures that the quality is very regular, unlike for example gum arabic or guar gum.

How do you use Xanthan gum?

To use Xanthan gum as a thickener, first mix it well with a small amount of vegetable glycerin. This will prevent the Xanthan gum from clumping in your skin care product. Add just as much glycerin until you have a slimy substance reminiscent of honey or syrup. Add a little cold water and your thickener is ready to use. It is important to add the viscous gum to your product when it is still warm, as the gum only becomes active in a warm environment.

Store the Xanthan Gum in a cool, dry and dark place and keep the packaging tightly closed.

Xanthan gum is natural

Xanthan gum is the only natural thickening agent approved internationally. That is why it has been given an E-number (E415), so that it is easy to recognise. Dosage: 0.5% -2%
