Tips on how to use - 
ChemThix DOE is easy to use. Typically ChemThix DOE is the  final step in the formulation. Use it  when you need to thicken a product. Add it in at small increments, as little as 0.50 (1/2 percent by weight), then thoroughly blend and check thickness. If your products is not at the desired thickness, add more, in the same amount as before, and mix and check again. If you want to make the ChemThix a little easier to use, try gently heating it to thin it out just a little. Try heating it in a double boiler, or even in a hot water bath in a  sink or bowl.  

Some common products that may thin out your surfactant/ surfactant blends are: Essential oils, Fragrance oils, preservatives. If after adding any of these you do not have the desired thickness in your products - that is a good time to use ChemThix DOE surfactant thickener.
