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.
Product has a very overpowering smell to it, but does what it is meant to do.
I love this product for bath bombs, especially to ensure that my products are a better quality. Great price and delivery turnaround.
Hello! This was my first time buying with this company after hearing great things. I really hate to ever write anything bad or negative about any smaller company, but I just had to share.
Reviewed both products so people are aware of how they come.
I ordered this and Sodium Lactate, both of which came the same way.
I ordered the 24 oz size which came about 3/4 of the way full in the bottle. The box that it came in had a oil/water stain at the bottom. Not sure if it was from this or the other product leaking out. Also, there was no safety cap and was not properly sealed. When opening the bottle, you can touch/see the liquid, as opposed to other companies having a plastic safety cap sealed on the top of the bottle (although I hate to use plastic, it does protect again the elements).
I was not very happy with my order. I am hesitant to use this product (or the other) now because I don't know how/if it was stored properly (given the condition).
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!
