  • Our polysorbate 20 is a non-ionic surfactant and wetting ingredient that enhances the spreadability of liquid formulations.
  • It acts as a solubilizer, allowing essential oils and aroma oils to adhere to a variety of cosmetic bases, such as liquid, cream, and gel.
  • It also acts as a dispersion, allowing oils to disperse throughout water without clumping or settling.
  • Our polysorbate 20 is an anti-static compound that helps to minimise and prevent static charges from accumulating.
  • It's both a thickener and a viscosity modifier, which helps keep a product's viscosity stable when it's exposed to extremes in temperature, such as cold or heat.
  • Its relaxing, non-irritating properties make it perfect for use in bath and body products, body and face cleansers, infant products, and other transparent and scented goods, as it helps to preserve both aroma and clarity.


  • It works by combining and stabilising the oil and water phases of your formulation.
  • It also works as a surfactant, emulsifier, and solubilizer in various cosmetic goods, especially where oils need to be solubilised in water.


  • It is recommended that it should be used at a concentration of 1-20%.
  • It is soluble in water, alcohol, and glycerol but is insoluble in oil.


  • Prepare the oil and water phases of your formulation separately.
  • Heat the oil and water phase using a double boiler.
  • Blend both the phases together using a mini-mixer or a large mixing brush.
  • Add our polysorbate 20 to the final phase to provide stability and better texture to your DIY formulation.
