Xanthan gum is an anionic, mixed polysaccharide, which is used to give cosmetic products their consistency, to improve application and thicken it. It is very skin-friendly, acts moisture-binding, tightening and is non-irritating.
Furthermore, xanthan gum has film-forming properties, with the positive effect that the transepidermal water loss is reduced. Similar to hyaluronic acid, xanthan combined with a moisture binding, creates a pleasant skin smoothing.
