more information

Polysorbate 20 is derived from sorbitol, a natural ingredient, and used in natural, eco friendly cleaning products. However, polysorbate 20 is not a natural ingredient. When Sorbitol – a sugar alcohol that can be derived from either a vegetable or a fruit source – is treated with 20 moles of Ethylene Oxide, the chemical reaction results in Polysorbate.

Since most fragrance oils are formulated to solubilize in water, they can separate or create a cloudy mixture when being added to water-based formulas. We suggest using a 2-1 ratio of Polysorbate to fragrance oil in order to maintain a clear and well-dispersed formula.
