Sodium Alginate, also commonly known as Jelly Bomb Powder, is an emulsifier or thickener that creates a gel like substance, much like jello.
It is used in shampoo formulations as a bubble stabilizer and thickener.
Unlike gelatin, Sodium Alginate is soluble in both hot and cold water
It helps create items such as shower bombs, jelly bombs, face masks and more.
It is completely natural with no chemical modification.
-Easily dispersible in room temperature water (allow 30 – 60 minutes for complete hydration)
-Compatible with a variety of emulsifiers and other skin care ingredients
-Excellent “carrier” for antioxidants and other anti-aging ingredients
-Final formula pH may need to be adjusted.
How to use: Sprinkle slowly into your water while using your stick blender, otherwise the mixture will clump up and may take days to combine.

I made Shower Bombs and I love this stuff! Leaves your skin so soft and silky.
I love Soap and More for many reasons. Some of top ones are *quality ingredients and *availability of ingredients/*ingredients I can't get elsewhere, very fast shipping; shipping costs are reasonable, relatively speaking; competitive pricing on most items and excellent customer service.
Love it! I am so new to Sodium Alginate, and I’m still finding my way around it all. But first few formulations I created were superb, though both behaved very differently. Can’t wait to play more!
