Natural Eco E Wax

Very happy with the product and with your service! The emulsifier works beautifully with a co-emulsifier such as lecithin, stearic acid or xantham gum, and it has a great skin feel. Quick delivery after the order, too!

Great skin feel

Works great and does not leave a weird skin feel like some emulsifiers tend to do. As stated in the blog it needs some stabilizing ingredients. I used Cetearyl alcohol and it created a beautiful thick cream

Cosmetic Development Lab

I am exceptionally happy with the two orders that i have placed with Essentially Natural to date.

It was GREAT to find a company that had most of the items that I need to make up small samples for clients: I am a Cosmetic Consultant and work from home, have a small lab and have large companies that are very happy to let me have small quantities of product as and when i need it, i just feel uncomfortable and really value finding your business.

Will definitely make use regularly AND, you trun around time is AWESOME:)

As other reviews have mentioned - difficult to obtain a stable emulsion

I am not sure what the secret is to this emulsifier. I tried very basic oil-to-water emulsions with a high-shear blender. I feel like some additional info on how to use this particular emulsifier would be beneficial.

Hi Lee, as mentioned on the product page, this emulsifier benefits from xanthan gum to help stabilise it.
