Polysorbate 20

Choose Quantity

Polysorbate 20 is a naturally derived solubilizer from Lauric Acid (which is from coconut oil) and is also know as Tween 20.  Polysorbate 20 is most commonly used to emulsify essential oils and oil soluble fragrance oils.  

Both, Polysorbates 80 and Polysorbate 20, are emulsifiers and solubilizers that are used to emulsify small amounts of oils (or butter, fragrance) into water. Both are safe and can be used in bath bombs and other skin care products.

A common use is mixing oils, fragrances, in to water. This makes it ideal when formulating custom body sprays, adding fragrances to formulations and making linen Sprays. Usually a 1 to 1 ratio of POLY 20 to oils in this application.

Commonly used in oil in water emulsions, like lotions, creams, hair conditioners, cream rinses and other preparations.
