Polysorbate 80: This is a common fragrance and essential oil solublizer as well as an emulsifying agent. It is soluble in water and alcohol and insoluble in oils. It is typically a co-emulsifier that is used both as a viscosity modifier and a dispersing agent for fragrances and essential oils for room sprays and linen sprays. In lotions, it works best for oil in water emulsions and is helpful for foaming or whipping body creams. When combined with liquid oils, Polysorbate 80 creates a blooming bath oil. It can also be used in a self-emulsifying sugar or salt scrub. Finally, in bath bombs, you can add up to 6% as a wetting agent (rather than a traditional witch hazel or liquid oil) to help prolong fizzing in the tub. Usage rate is from 1-5% as a co-emulsifier in lotions and up to 50% for a dispersing bath oil or fragrance/essential oil carrier.

Just used this in my bath bombs, substituting for half of my oils. They turned out great.

I use this in my emulsified sugar scrubs and my conditioner. It works great in both and helps to keep everything together. I also think it helps the scent hold a little better. I definitely recommend this!

35 lbs comes in a large plastic pail
Be warned... if ordering 35 lbs, it comes in a large plastic pail (similar to 50 pounds of coconut oil). Not what I was expecting nor the easiest to pour- you can't pour, you need a laddle to get it all out. When I have ordered this amount from other places, it comes in jugs, much easier. Nothing wrong with the product, just a heads up as to how it is packaged would be helpful.

Hi Laura! I'm sorry the packaging wasn't your favorite. We've found the pail makes it easy to portion the liquid out, rather than having to lift a heavy jug. Some of our customers portion the mixture out into heat resistant pouches to make it easier. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
