Lecithin Sunflower is a naturally occurring antioxidant and emollient used to make a variety of beauty care products such as, eye creams, lipsticks, liquid powders, and hand creams. Fat molecules are made up of a certain percentage of lecithin, which when consumed in the foods we eat – that lecithin helps our bodies break down fat. This is one out of the many reasons why some people take this liquid as a dietary supplement.
For cosmetics, lecithin helps bind oils and water together but it’s generally not reliable as a stand-alone emulsion system. Used in conjunction with other emulsifying agents, like our SCG, emulsifying wax, or even lanolin and/or beeswax we think you will like the results quite well! Lecithin is a highly sticky product, and it’s nearly impossible to wash off your tools and equipment, yes, it is … that … sticky. When used in lotion and cream formulations, it becomes quite diluted down from the other ingredients, and imparts a fine nourishing film that penetrates the skin layers and assists with creating a firm emulsion system.
Use at a ratio of up to 10% of the oil phase of the recipe. Heat with this phase of the recipe.
Food grade, this item can be used in cosmetics as well as food.
