Acacia Gum Powder, found in the food industry, chiefly acts as a stabilizer for manufacturing a host of edibles (ice cream, yogurt, pudding, etc.). Our USDA-certified organic Acacia Gum Powder also has a place within the beauty care industry for a very similar task of holding together or gelling ingredients. It can work as a co-emulsifier, so if you need to thicken your water-based product, try giving this powder a try. Not only will it assist with oil-to-water emulsions, but it also has the added benefit of being a mild preservative.
It will reduce foaming/lathering when added at too high of a ratio in body washes. For this reason, use at a lower percentage in products designed to “foam.”
Our Acacia Gum Powder is of food-grade quality. Try incorporating it as a fiber into your cooking. Agitate into cold water for best results. Our acacia gum item is pre-hydrated and agglomerated so as to give quick results with virtually no lumps. Unbleached: this means your finished product may discolor from a tan to brown, depending upon the concentration used. Please note we are a cosmetic supply company. Because of this, our labels will speak of topical use even though Acacia Gum Powder is food-grade from the manufacturer.
