    Formulations
    In emulsions, add to the water phase and whisk continuously until it is fully dissolved taking care not to introduce air bubbles and avoid clumping. The mix won’t thicken immediately. Can be heated to speed up the process. Can be dispersed in vegetable glycerine before adding to the water phase.

    For gels, add to the water-based ingredients and homogenise rapidly. Can take some time for the gum the hydrate and for the gel to thicken.

    Solubility
    Soluble in water

    Additional Information
    Can be used in a wide range of pH and temperatures, not heat sensitive.

    Applications
