Acacia Senegal and Xanthan Gum

$25

Description:

Acacia Senegal Gum is a 100% natural thickening & stabilising polymer consisting of two thickeners Senegal Gum and Xanthan Gum. Unlike xanthan gum, this combination of two thickeners leads to a polymer that dissolves quickly and leaves a non-sticky & fresh aqueous sensation. Its versatility allows it to be used in every cosmetic application. The benefit of this dual thickener over straight xanthan gum is that it gives a less stringy thickening effect making it able to produce more elegant and cosmetically acceptable products.

Compatibility:

This gum can thicken in the presence of salts, surfactants, peroxide and acids. In fact, between 0.6-1% salt is recommended as a viscosity booster. It works between pH 3-12. This thickener is not suitable for products that contain high concentrations of acids or are set at a low pH, it may become too thick to use over time.

  • Creams
  • Lotions
  • Gels
  • Shampoos
  • Body Washes
  • Conditions
