If you're looking for a natural thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer for your cosmetic creations, guar gum may be the perfect solution. Guar gum has eight times the water thickening potency of cornstarch, and as a stabilizer it prevents most solid particles from settling in your finished products. It's also a vegan ingredient and is an acceptable alternative to gelatin in many recipes. Many soap makers and cosmetic product makers have issues with viscosity in finished products but adding guar gum to the recipe can help you avoid many headaches and get your product to the perfect consistency.
