Xanthan Gum Clear
CAS: 11138-66-2

 
Xanthan Gum is a natural gum polysaccharide created through fermentation of sugar (glucose or sucrose) by Xanthomonas campestris bacteria. Xanthan Gum is used as a food additive, and in cosmetics, as a thickener or rheology modifier and emulsion stabilizer. Our Xanthan Gum Clear is a higher purity, cosmetic grade made without hydration retardants for quicker thickening. It produces the clearest gels.  Our Xanthan Gum Clear in solution with have greater viscosity and clarity than our Xanthan Gum Soft, but with more stringing 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. Xanthan Gum is an excellent natural source thickener for lotions, creams, liquid soap, shower gels, body washes and shampoos.

Features

  • Natural source thickener
  • High viscosity at low use
  • Produces clear gels
  • Synergistic with other gums, including GuarCat™

Xanthan Gum Clear is NOT manufactured with built in hydration delay. To incorporate without agglomeration, create a vortex in the water with your mixer (paddle, stick blender, etc.) and sprinkle the xanthan gum into the vortex. Alternately, the xanthan gum can be pre-dispersed in glycerin or propylene glycol and then immediately added to the water phase with mixing. Once the xanthan gum is fully hydrated, the resulting solution can be heated if necessary for the inclusion of other ingredients.

Thanks so much and keep up the good work!

Jenny is a very helpful technical person. I was only looking for something simple such as sodium hydroxide and shampoo thickener. And Jenny went all the extra miles explaining over the phone for these two ingredients. She is a very, very helpful and knowledgeable person. Thank you Jenny!!!
Edmund, (Excel Creation Inc.)

Hello this is Barry from mountaincrafted and I ordered Hydrolyzed Silk Protein from this company and what a difference in our products it made! We use it in all of our hair & skin products, but our customers love it most in our goat's milk soap. Try it, it will surely boost your sales!
Barry Carver, (Mountain Crafted)

My computer chat group of soapmakers began the year after Jen began her supplier career
"Lotioncrafter". We began when only a handful of folks were both selling supplies and only a few were actually making lotion and soap at home. The industry has boomed and it's a testimonial to see Jen's supply business still at the top of the supplier list! So many have come and gone. That is because both her supplies and her technical and customer support is superior to all the rest!
Thank you!
Debra Sturdevant
