Guar Gum, also called Guaran, is a fiber extracted from guar beans. It is mainly used as a thickening agent or emulsifier as it increases the viscosity of water in very small quantities.
Guar gum is a naturally derived thickener. Frequently used in body washes & shampoos, Guar Gum can be used in any formula that contains a high level of water. Please note however it can be inconsistent, cause clear formulas to become cloudy, and feel sticky on skin.
