Method
Give hot distilled water and EDTA into a clean and disinfected glass beaker, sprinkle xanthan gum into it and stir with high speed. Add phase B to phase A and stir. Prepare phase C in a separate, heat resistant glass beaker and heat to 150oF/66oC. Stir well until the mixture is homogenous. Heat up also phase A/B to (maximum 150oF/66oC). Remove the two phases from the heat and add phase C to phase A/B. Mix thoroughly and cool it down to 100oF/40oC. Finally, add phase D and stir again.
