INCI Name: Dehydroxanthan Gum
AMAZE® XT polymer is an anionic film-former, supplied as an off-white powder. Multifunctional, it serves as both the fixative and the thickener/suspending agent for gels and other styling aids. AMAZE® XT polymer provides unprecedented hold under highly humid conditions without being tacky or flaking. It is easy to use, as it disperses quickly in water and does not require neutralization, resulting in as much as an 80% reduction in manufacturing time compared to traditional gel systems.
AMAZE® XT is a physically modified food grade Xanthan gum, Xanthan gum being a high molecular weight polysaccharide (MW > 4x106). Xanthan gum is a microbial biopolymer produced by fermentation of carbohydrate and plant derived proteins by Xanthomonas bacteria. This Xanthomonas bacteria is a naturally occurring organism. Therefore AMAZE® XT is Xanthan gum is a natural product of the bacteria and only physically modified (heat treated) without the addition of chemicals.
AMAZE® XT is not certified as Vegan, however it does not contain any materials either as a raw material or in it processing that are:
derived from meat, fish, or poultry and also any other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.
Based on this AMAZE® XT should be suitable for use in Vegan cosmetic products
