Due to demand, we decided to bring in polysorbate 80. Our customers use it in their bath formulas to avoid that dreaded ring around the tub when colours and oils used. We also carry a more natural liquid solubilizer called Plant-based emulsifier.
Polysorbate 80 is a nonionic surfactant and emulsifier derived from oleic acid.
Individually, it is an excellent solubilizer of essential oils, wetting agent a viscosity modifier, stabilizer & dispersing agent.
Use it in the creation of linen and room sprays, body sprays, rinse off for scrubs and cleansing oils, bath bombs when using colourants and other products where oils need to be solubilised in water. Add up to 6% in bath bombs for a longer fizz.Recommended usage level: 1-50%.
Shelf Life: 24 months when properly stored and handles
Flash Point:> 300F
I’ve discovered that using this in my bubble bath bombs I have experienced no bathtub rings from any colorant I’ve used. Yay!
I love this product. It keeps the oils from pooling on top of the water and keeps micas and lakes from sticking to the tub.
