Xanthan gum is an anionic polysaccharide that is derived from Xanthomonas campestris by a pure-culture fermentation process. Xanthan gum is a food grade thickener and stabilizer.

The Herbarie's XanThix is an excellent natural source choice for stabilizing and building viscosity in creams and lotions. XanThix can be used to thicken shampoo and body wash but is not the most efficient choice for surfactant based systems. XanThix has not been chemically modified, but has been especially manufactured to improve dispersion when added to water.

High Viscosity at low use percentages
Good freeze/thaw stability
Synergy with other gums—particularly GuarThix or GuarSilk
Natural thickener for shampoo/body wash, lotions and creams
Compatible with a wide variety of surfactants, fragrance and essential oils but may settle out of solution over time.
Easily disperses in room temperature water – can be heated once product is completely hydrated.
