Xanthan is an anionic, water-soluble hydrocolloid. The sum of its positive properties makes the gel and film former indispensable for cosmetic formulations. Xanthan is temperature, thaw, and freeze stable, tolerates high electrolyte content, and alcohol, and can withstand significant pH fluctuations. In addition, xanthan gum is suitable for hot and cold-stirred emulsions. Xanthan is very well tolerated by the skin and, as a film-forming polysaccharide, also provides a moisturizing or moisture-retaining effect.
