  • Xanthan Gum Clear help

    Hi, I am doing a cosmetic emulsion to create a hair cream/gel with Xanthan Gum clear but my products keep coming out grainy. I tried Xanthan + vegetable glycerin in heated water+aloe juice, grainy. Then I tried Xanthan + oil blend, in cold oil phase, it came out liquid. added more Xanthan to the emulsion and back to grainy. Any ideas?

    @curlmaster211 With proper mixing and hydration time, there souldn’t be any issues, but it’d be better to know more details about your formula, since the best we can do now is guessing.
