In a heat-resistant beaker add the ingredients of phase A. In another heat-resistant beaker add and mix the ingredients of phase B, one at a time.
The glasses are placed in a water bath, both phases are heated to a temperature of 80°C then removed from the heat.
Mix phase B for 20-30 seconds, then slowly pour phase A over phase B while stirring, and continue mixing for 3 minutes.
Place the glass in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, and continue mixing for 3 more minutes.
Sprinkle the xanthan gum over the formed emulsion while mixing. Continue to mix the composition for one more minute and leave it to rest for about 10 minutes.
