Xanthan gum as cosmetic ingredient

Xanthan gum is used in cosmetic products as it has the capability to hold water, help keep different ingredients from separating, enhancing freeze-thaw stability, inhibiting starch retro-gradation, improves shelf life and helps with the stabilization of a product and has some skin hydrating properties.

xanthan gum natural skin cream

This ingredient is made by fermentation of corn sugar by Xanthomonas campestris. The basis of it is similar to cellulose, but the trisaccharide side chains of mannose and glucuronic acid make the molecule rigid, allowing it to form a right-handed helix.

This ingredient is a long chain polysaccharide, composed of the sugars glucose, mannose, and glucuronic acid.

One of the major advantages of xanthan gum is that it improves texture, gives a pleasant skin feel to the product, while suspending the active ingredients.

It is compatible and stable in solutions with a high salt concentration, yet is also stable in acid or alkaline solutions and is resistant to enzymatic degradation.

Side chains lie alongside, this makes it stable for use with acids and alkalis. Enzymes protect the glucan backbone.
