What's Xanthan Gum?

Xanthan gum is a sugar-like compound made by mixing aged (fermented) sugars with a certain kind of bacteria. It is an effective thickening agent and stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating. The EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database rates xanthan gum as a very low to low hazard ingredient.
