Polysorbate 80 is soluble in alcohol and water; insoluble in oils. It is used in oil in water recipes for lotions, body washes, hair creams, lip gloss, scrubs, dispersing bath oils, conditioners, bath bombs, shampoos, body sprays/linen sprays.

  • Used in formulas with our Crothix pastilles to thicken formulas.
  • Used to solubilize fragrances and essential oils, and blend with vegetable oils to create bath oils that "bloom," when added to bath water.
  • Brings an often desired added lubricity beneficial in many formulations.
  • A great choice to improve rinse off of anhydrous scrubs, and cleansing oils.
  • Can also help loosen the stiffness created when you've accidentally added too much thickener in a formulation and it has reached the "glob" stage.

    Great quality - Great price

    Posted by Misty on Feb 6th 2018

    I am forever looking for better prices while maintaining high quality. My extended family and I are making our own Household products. While I am one of the newer ones in the group, I am the one they have chosen for finding what we need. When I started, they were paying twice as much for most everything they used. I am slowly finding better choices. So far, Make Your Own has come out the winner. So, that says we are pleased with the products and the prices. The ladies all say that the measurements have not changed using these products. That is a great sign of continued quality. Thx

    Thisbis my favorite polysorbate. I have use other companies and I feel like it’s texture didn’t hold as well as this companies. I use in bath bombs and highly recommend especially when using heavy oils . You can’t beat the price either.
