i love makeyourown.buzz!! they have great information on every product purchased from them and great quality!
Fast shipping and easy to use
This works perfect in my leave-in conditioners!
Works very well for shampoo bars. Great product.
This is my favorite emulsifier. It acts the same as BTMS 50 I've bought anywhere else. It has never failed on me in any lotion and conditioner, except that one time I tried to use something anionic when I wasn't paying attention. Oils, silicones, electrolytes, it just works.
Use this in multiple products we make and it is fabulous every time. Packaging is great. Shipping is fast. Customer service is perfect. Love the company and the products.
use in my shampoo bars,& conditioner bars, costly but I guess that what makes my product great.
Works awesome in my shampoo bars.
This is the second time I have ordered this product. I use it in lotion, shampoo and conditioner bars. I find it to be a wonderful conditioning agent in all of those products and will order again when I run out. Just a word of warning to first time buyers; when you open the bag and while it is melting, it has a strange fishy smell (which is odd since it is plant based). Don't worry though, it does not remain in the finished product. I only mention it because the first time I used it I thought there was something wrong with it and wished that someone had given me a heads-up. This is an excellent product, buy with confidence.
