Xanthan gum is completely soluble in water.
Usage: in formulations xanthan gum is typically used from 0.1-1%; in gels it is used up to 10% for very thick gels.
Xanthan gum needs to be hydrated to disperse in the aqueous phase. Measure out the xanthan gum then add a little vegetable glycerine and blend together. This will assist in dispersion with aqueous phase: add either cold or warm water, blending until desired gel consistency is achieved. You can also use a different water based ingredient such as hydrosol, aloe vera gel, botanical infusions, etc. in place of the water.
Xanthan gum comes in various mesh sizes, or particle sizes.
80 mesh xanthan gum is the standard, and this xanthan gum is suitable for all applications. However it is considered the better emulsion stabiliser due to its slightly larger particle size. It also makes syngergistic blends with guar gum.
200 mesh xanthan gum is finer than 80 mesh, and therefore is easier to dissolve and disperse, and it has a quick hydration rate.

Used it for the first time. Was quite happy with the end result😊
Grateful to have found your product in bulk online good quality, but most of all I appreciate the quick prompt service from placing the order to being delivered.
Good Quality. A level teaspoon can thicken up around 100ml. The gel formed is soft and silky. Highly recommended for making non-detergent liquid hand wash.
