5 out of 5 stars Works great for emulsified sugar scrubs 08/04/2014
Reviewer: Laura Harris from Fort Oglethorpe, GA US
Can definitely tell the difference between this and a traditional wax by the silky feel. Works great, no problems whatsoever with emulsion or stability, and a terrific price!
5 out of 5 stars Great for Lotions 02/16/2014
Reviewer: Dana Huff from Worcester, MA US
I should preface this review by stating upfront that I've not tried any other kind of emulsifying wax, but having said that, it performs very well in my handmade lotion, and it's very easy to work with. I love it!
5 out of 5 stars Love 10/01/2013
Reviewer: Stephanie Blasini from Salem, MA US
Absolutely love this wax. I use just a tad to my goats milk MP and it gives it such a smooth and silky finish. Melt it and whip it up with sugar and coconut oil and you have yourself a great scrub that doesn't dry out your skin and combines all the ingredients wonderfully.

This is a must have product for me to make my body butters. Along with my carrier oils, it helps make my body butter very moisturizing. Thanks!
