I’ve been struggling with Polawax the last 2 or 3 years after using it for 17 years. Today I figured it out. Add 5% PW and 3% BTMS and you will have an incredible lotion. No need to add stearic, cetyl or anything. Just water, oils, butters, preservative. Nothing else compares!

Excellent in Face creams

I love using Polawax in face creams or when I need my lotion to not thicken too quickly. It can be a little more finicky than traditional emulsifying wax (which is a great affordable alternative) so make sure to add your water phase to your oil phase and both phases should be around 145 degrees to 160 degrees.

I have been making lotions for years and have never had a problem with the PolaWax. Sorry to say this is not the same. I am very dissapointed after spending &90.00 and having almost water for lotion. I call to see if it was out of date and was told no. Now I'm stuck with this high dollar Ewax and the cheaper version that seperates as well.

The Polawax Emulsifying Wax is National Formulary and manufactured by Croda. This emulsifier will keep your lotion from separating though it won't necessarily thicken you're lotion depending on the recipe. For more help check out How to Create Homemade Lotion Recipes.

not impressed

ive been making soaps and lotions for over 6 years now and i wanted to try this but didnt want to spend the extra money when btms and e wax work just fine, i bought the 5 lb bag and have used it twice now with my tried and true formula and both times my lotion separated. Never had this happen before with my e wax or btms. Im not giving up just yet but i dont think i would recommend this product.

Happy Customer
I love this!

At first I was hesitant to buy this product because I didn't see any reviews, but after trying it I absolutely love how it make my lotions feel. The texture is more silkier and smoother than using the less expensive brand of Emulsifying Wax.
