Formulating Tips

  • Direct heat - electric hotplates or stovetops are recommended. We do not recommend using a water bath or microwave. Monitor constantly while heating.
  • Our Stainless steel beakers are perfect for small lab size batches as well as batches up to 1000grams. (see Equipment and Accessories)
  • HEC is not oil soluble, but by dispersing into the hot oil phase, the particles will separate and will be incorporated into the emulsion more easily. HEC will provide an emollient silkiness to this formula.
  • Overhead mixer or hand held stick blender can be used. When emulsion begins to thicken, switch to a paddle attachment or hand held stir tool such as our stainless steel whips.
  • Airless Containers are recommended (see Packaging and Containers)
