Polysorbate 20 - Emulsifier & Solubiliser
A must for essential oil users, polysorbate is a non-toxic, mild surfactant, emulsifier and solubiliser, used in many cosmetics, particularly body sprays and air fresheners.
Polysorbate 20 emulsifies oil and water together, making it an essential ingredient to combine essential oils and water or water-based products that would otherwise seperate.
Ideal for making your own air freshener, face mist and other spray formulas using essential oils., polysorbate ensures the oil particles disperse evenly throughout water or water soluble ingredients. Your formulas won't require shaking before use and by evenly dispersing your oils you won't run the risk of burning your skin.
Recommend use: Blend equal parts of your Oil with Polysorbate until the solution is clear, then add to the water or alcohol.
Solubility: Soluble in water & ethanol. Practically insoluble in fatty oils and liquid paraffin
