  • @lopamudra it depends on how thick you are trying to go. @Nubian is suggesting a grade of xanthan that should meet your needs:

    BASF’s Rheocare XGN is a new vegan, non-GMO xanthan gum stabiliser, thickener and hair styling polymer for emulsions and surfactant-based products including oral care. This Cosmos-compliant polymer is based on 100% renewable feedstock. It combines suspending and stabilising properties with high yield value and creates elastic properties in formulations. Formulations in water are crystal-clear. Its electrolyte and ethanol tolerance is high
  • @EVchem thanks for that.
