XANTHAN GUM

XANTHAN GUM

Xanthan gum is a natural polysaccharide, which means it is a complex carbohydrate derived from sugars. It helps prevent the separation of ingredients, keeping the product well-mixed and homogeneous.

This is particularly important in emulsions (products containing both oil and water), where xanthan gum helps maintain the desired consistency over time.

One of the unique properties of xanthan gum is its ability to hold onto water molecules.

In skincare products, this means it can help increase hydration and moisture retention in the skin.
