Great product. It comes in a container that is so easy to use. It works wonderfully in lotion and it is a very fair price.

i've seen this described as able to use an emulsifier. I'm looking for one to make concentrated soaps to where I just add this to water and im good to go. Mainly for insecticidal soaps. How natural/organic is this product?
