    Not a cosmetic grade

    I used this xanthan gum for making clear gel . But even after lot of trials with different percentage in formula it did not give a clear transparent gel. The final product was always very cloudy.


    Thank you for your feedback. However, the xanthan gum is cosmetic grade. This product is not a thickner ideal for transparent gels. We have a seperate clear xanthan gum that can be used to get clear / transparent finish in gels. Hope this helps with future formulations :)
