Jojoba beads should be incorporated in to formulations at room temperature. If you are suspending the beads in a blend of some type, you will need to experiment and make sure the product has enough thickness and high yield rheology to suspend the particles.
Often you will need to premix the beads in to an aqueous blend of water before adding the beads in to the final product to prevent the beads from clumping together.
* When used in glycerin Melt and pour soaps the beads may tend to float upward to the top of your soap during cooling phase.
