Emulsifying Wax

Emulsifying wax is one of the essential ingredients in making lotions and creams. Think of it as the "glue" that will hold your recipe together.

Lotions and creams are created from a mixture of water and oils. Without the addition of emulsifying wax, they too would separate back into water and oils.

Adding emulsifying wax to your recipe will keep the oil and water from separating by creating an emulsion between the oil and water.

Use this waxy material to emulsify your water and oils together. Usage varies based on the combination of thickeners but normal usage rates are between 3 and 6% of the total weight of your recipe. This is one of the easiest emulsifiers to use and is used by most home crafters of lotions and creams.
