How to Work with It:
Thickener Liquid is pretty flexible when it comes to incorporating it into our formulations.
Thickener Liquid can be added at the very end of the making process, adding approximately 1% at a time and stirring gently between additions until the desired final consistency has been reached.
Thickener Liquid can also be included in formulations right from the start and can be hot or cold processed.
Keep in mind that the amount of thickener liquid required to thicken a formulation can vary with the essential oil and/or fragrance oil used. The product’s final pH should be in the 5–9 range.
