Xanthan Gum is a popular thickening agent and emulsifier used in skincare and cosmetic products. It is a naturally derived ingredient produced by fermenting sugars with the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris.

Soft Xanthan Gum, also known as low viscosity xanthan gum, is a modified form of xanthan gum that has been treated to reduce its viscosity, or thickness. This modification results in a softer, more flowable texture compared to regular xanthan gum, which is thicker and more gel-like in consistency.

The main difference between xanthan gum and soft xanthan gum lies in their viscosity and texture. Xanthan gum is typically used as a thickener and stabilizer in products where a higher viscosity is desired, such as in creams, lotions, and gels. Soft xanthan gum, on the other hand, is ideal for products that require a softer, more flowable texture, such as serums, sprays, and lightweight lotions.

In our products for the company called Scrub a lil Deepa, we specifically use soft xanthan gum to achieve the desired texture and consistency for our formulations. It helps to provide a smooth and easy-to-apply texture, allowing our products to spread evenly and provide a pleasant user experience.

Both xanthan gum and soft xanthan gum are safe and commonly used in skincare and cosmetic products. They are considered effective and well-tolerated ingredients, and their use is regulated by various cosmetic industry standards and guidelines.
