OVERVIEW:

Acacia gum is used in a variety of products ranging from ink to ice cream. A water-soluble gum, it is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in foods and is a good source of fiber. In herbal medicine, the gum is used to bind pills and lozenges and to stabilize emulsions. It is also used to produce a medium for applying essential oils, balsams, resins, camphor, and musk. It is used in lotions, creams, pomades, shampoos, body washes, balms, and cosmetic products like mascara.
