oz. & lbs.:
Polysorbate 80 is a common fragrance and essential oil solublizer as well as an emulsifying agent. It is soluble in water and alcohol and insoluble in oils. It is typically a co-emulsifier that is used both as a viscosity modifier and a dispersing agent for fragrances and essential oils for room sprays and linen sprays. When combined with liquid oils, Polysorbate 80 creates a blooming bath oil. It can also be used in a self-emulsifying sugar or salt scrub. In bath bombs, you can add up to 6% as a wetting agent (rather than a traditional witch hazel or liquid oil) to help prolong fizzing in the tub.

All of our chemicals are originally purchased as USP/NF/Kosher grade; however, because they are purchased in bulk containers and re-bottled, we must sell them as “Technical Grade”. Rest assured, the re-bottling process takes place in a very clean environment, with the utmost care to maintain the product's purity. The re-bottling process does not take place in an FDA certified clean room (at a cost of over $100,000.00), these products are technically no longer USP grade. We guarantee the original potency of all re-bottled products and nothing at all is ever added or diluted.

Listed here are hard-to-find items not readily available to the general public, but most requested by our customers. Please see our disclaimer located at the bottom of this page. All our oils and chemicals are purchased in drums as USP/NSF/KOSHER grade, but because they are "repackaged" into smaller containers, we must by law, resell them as "Technical Grade".
