Essential Therapeutics Essential Solubilizer 250 ml
Essential Solubilizer 250 ml is an almond and coconut oil derived emulsifier that will effectively disperse essential and/or vegetable oils into water for creating aromatic baths, facial mists and more.
Turkey Red Oil” (sulfated castor oil – the first man-made detergent) is one older product that has been used for creating essential oil emulsions. Essential Solubilizer is a modern improvement on Turkey Red Oil, colourless, odourless and is a more effective emulsifier. Essential Solubilizer is based on mild emulsifiers derived from pure Almond and Coconut oils. These emulsifiers are non-toxic, non-allergenic and fully compatible with the skin. Such emulsifiers are the basis for a number of natural cosmetic products, such as essential oil-based “skin conditioning” sprays.
Use Essential Solubilizer 50/50 with vegetable oils and five parts Essential Solubilizer oils to one part essential oils. Mix Essential Solubilizer with oils first and then add to water.
Essential Solubilizer is generally used in the ratio of 3 to 5 parts Solubilizer to 1 part essential oil. Lower amounts of Solubilizer will create a milky emulsion; higher amounts will create a clear solution. Some essential oils, such as citrus oils, require a higher amount of Solubilizer in order to create a clear solution. Unlike Disper, Solubilizer will also emulsify vegetable oils into water. For vegetable oils, use a ratio of 1 to 2 parts Solubilizer to each part vegetable oil.
