Note:  Until our replacement pouches arrive, the 2.5kg option for this product is packed in a jerry can.

Solubiliser and co-emulisfier.  Polysorbate 20 is the essential ingredient for making body and room sprays.  It acts as a solubiliser, allowing the oil phase of your formula to disperse and fully incorporate into the water phase.  Polysorbate allows the formulation of room sprays and body sprays that do not separate - it may take some tweaking of temperatures and ratio to achieve a completely clear product.

Polysorbate 20 has good solubilising properties and is recommended as a mildness additive in aqueous (water based) systems for Baby Shampoo and as a cleansing agent in Wet Wipes.

HLB: 16.7
Usage Rate:  2% - 7% - up to 1:1 for solublising Fragrances and Essential Oils, and as a co-emulsifier try keeping to between these figures.
Suitable for Vegans
