Xanthan Gum, Prehydrated
- Non-gelling thickener (but binds water) and viscosity enhancer
- Provides volume and enhances foam in surfactants systems
- Stabilizes emulsions
- Has lubricant properties
- Can act as suspending agent
- Pre-hydrated for easy mixing
Use: Dissolve in warm water (ideally sprinkle slowly into water under constant high-speed stirring). Add propylene glycol or buylene glycol to the water phase (3parts glycol,1part xanthan gum) for best dispersion. Also adding up to 0.5% sodium chloride (salt) will increase the thickening effect. Typical use level 0.5-2%. For external use only.Applications: Shampoos, conditioners, lotions, creams, body washes, shower gels.
