Introducing Craftiviti’s Xanthan Gum that is a natural thickener (polysaccharide) derived from glucose or sucrose (sugars) used to add viscosity and texture to skincare products such as lotion, hair gel, liquid soap, body shower, serum and more. Xanthan gum creates a gel texture when added with water adding a smooth glide to cream and lotion and improves product shelf life. Also helps to stabilize cosmetic emulsions that prevents oil separation.
