    Elegant Skin Feel

    Posted by Aerin on Aug 12th 2019

    A couple percent of this in a non-ionic or cationic lotion adds an extra touch of smoothness. I find that it can also help an oily lotion feel a little less sticky, and it can be added in the cool down phase at about the point where I've figured out that a lotion is going to feel sticky. And it goes nicely in cleansers for hair and skin.
