Polysorbate 80

Regular price $5.00 Sale

Description: Polysorbate 80 is a light yellow liquid  that is soluble in water, alcohol and insoluble oils. It is an emulsifier that allows fragrance and essential oils to bind with water based products. Depending on your formula, your end product may be cloudy. Can be used in lotions, creams, bath bombs, scrubs and hair conditioner. 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. 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. 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.

  • Is this really one pound? I see Amazon selling a few hundred grams and costing why more than this so how are the two different. Will I need to prep before using your product or can I start applying it via spray immediately out of the package?

    Hello! Yes this item is a concentrated polysorbate. You will not need to dilute but for easy integration with your products just add it to any liquid substance. For example if you have any light oil like almond or mct oil you're adding to your bath bomb recipe. just add the polysorbate 80 to your wet ingredients. Many times the products on amazon may be slightly more expensive due to the manufaturers cost. We on the other hand cut out the third party distributor and from our manufacturer we sell wholesale directly to our customers.
