What Are the Applications of Xanthan Gum in Daily Necessities?

Ⅰ. The xanthan gum uses in skin care


Xanthan gum molecule contains a large number of hydrophilic groups, which is a good surface active substance, and has the functions of anti-oxidation and prevention of skin aging. Therefore, almost most high-end cosmetics use xanthan gum as its main functional ingredients.


1. Xanthan gum products are used in cosmetics and detergents to help spread and absorb quickly and make the skin smooth.


2. Used in shampoo and skin care products, it has suspension stabilizing effect and can increase foam.


3. Xanthan gum products are used in facial masks. Its good adhesion and high static viscosity make the mask easy to adhere to the skin and easy to peel off.


Ⅱ. The application of xanthan gum in toothpaste


1. Xanthan gum colloid is not greatly affected by temperature, has good stability to enzymes, and can be used in a wide range of pH values. It is not sensitive to the effects of salt and is stable to low concentrations of fluoride. Therefore, toothpaste made of xanthan gum has excellent stability.


2. Xanthan gum has good thickening and suspending properties. It can be compounded with various components in toothpaste, such as carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), which can make up for the shortcomings of CMC toothpaste.


3. Xanthan gum also has good pseudoplasticity. When mechanical action is applied, the colloid becomes thin and easy to flow; after the mechanical action is removed, the colloid immediately returns to its original state, and the toothpaste made of xanthan gum has good stripe properties and is not easy to collapse. The squeezing pressure is small, the paste is bright, not drawing, and easy to transport.


In addition, xanthan gum can also be used as a polishing agent in daily necessities applications, for example, it is used as a polishing agent in the production of shoe polish and floor wax.


Xanthan gum is known as "industrial monosodium glutamate" and is currently the world's largest-scale and extremely versatile microbial polysaccharide. In view of the multi-functional properties of xanthan gum and the wide range of applications, people's enthusiasm for research on xanthan gum has not diminished. It is believed that with the further in-depth research and the further improvement of the production process, the application range of xanthan gum will be more extensive.
