Method
Add phase A into a disinfected glass beaker, sprinkle the xanthan gum into the water and mix well. Combine phase B in another beaker and heat to 150F/65 to melt the glycol stearate IP. Add phase A to phase B and stir gently to mix all ingredients. Add phase C to a separate beaker and heat also to 150F/65C to melt the ingredients. Add phase C to the still hot phase A/B and stir until it is a homogenous solution. Remove from the heat. Cool to 100oF/40oC and add phase D to phase A/B/C, stir again.

Properties
