Guar gum + xanthan gum as a suspension agent?
For the following hair conditioner…..
Ingredient list: *Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Aqua, *Coconut Oil, *Camelina Oil, *Meadowfoam Seed Oil, *Olive Oil, *Hemp Seed Oil, *Shea Butter, *Vegetable Glycerin, *Rosemary leaf, *Calendula, *Nettle, *Catnip, *Alfalfa, *Rose Hips, *Flax, *Linden flowers, *Peppermint, *Dandelion, *Burdock, *Horsetail, *Sage, *Chamomile, *Ginseng, *Oregano, *Thyme, *Lavender, *Goldenseal, *Cinnamon, *Cayenne, *Guar Gum, §Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate,*Vinegar, †Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil, †Rose Essential oil, †Rosemary Essential Oil, †Orange Essential Oil.
I emailed them to ask what was the emulsifier here, as the ingredient list looked a bit suspect, and they said, “We have developed a proprietary physical emulsification method, that, along with the Xanthan and Guar gums, allows our shampoos and conditioners to achieve their smooth, silky consistency.”
