Polysorbate 20 is a gentle emulsifier and is also a non-ionic surfactant. It is used as a stabilizer for perfumes in water based formulas and as an emulsifier for oils in water. When emulsifying essential oils it is able to maintain the properties and integrity of the oil it emulsifies and so is highly recommended for this purpose.
It is used in creams, body sprays, salves, cleansers, cream rinses, conditioners, scrubs, pomades, lotions, bath oils, lipsticks, glosses, mists, mascaras, ointments, toners and body wipes. It is also used in linen sprays and mists. Polysorbate 20 is not the most effective emulsifier as separation can occur in some of the products it is added in but with shaking it will quickly re-emulsify.
It is very lubricating and soothing for the skin. It is best used in products when a very low amount of foaming action is desired.

How Does this Ship?
Our ingredients are normally shipped out in strong, re-closeable plastic bags, the larger sizes (50 lbs size and multiples of 50 Lb) are shipped in strong paper / plastic industrial strength bags typically used for 50 lb chemicals. In some cases, depending on stock levels, we might use multiple bags to fulfill an order, for example, 16 lbs might be 4 x 4 lbs rather than a single 16 lb bag. If the packaging size is a concern please contact us and we will be happy to work with you.
