Our Emulsifying Wax is a vegetable based emulsifier that is useful in both water-in-oil and oil-in-water emulsions. It is used to combine water and oil within creams and lotions so that they do not separate. Emulsifying Wax can be used at 5%-10%. To use, melt Emulsifying Wax with your other fats and waxes. Then, slowly add them to the water phase of your formulation while stirring continuously. Keep your emulsion in motion until completely cooled.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
