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, 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.
