Xanthan gum is a natural thickening ingredient, commonly used in natural skin and hair care formulations. It enhances the stability and texture of creams and lotions and it is a key ingredient for producing gels. Furthermore, it helps to suspend particles and, for this reason, it is especially useful for producing exfoliating products.
Xanthan gum thickens water and water based ingredients, but not oils (for oil thickener, use Skincare Crafters VELVET and it should be added to the water phase. Our xanthan gum has a larger particle size that provides easy and clump-free dissolution.

Dissolve the xanthan gum by sprinkling it onto room temperature water (not too cold, not too warm) while whisking the water. The easiest way though, that we actually recommend, is to dissolve it into glycerine first, as it will disperse quickly and not require whisking.
Keep in mind that the gum will continue to thicken over the following days after the product is made and, only after that, the final viscosity (thickness) of the product will be reached.
