Menthol Crystals (L-), Natural
CAS No. 2216-51-5

Menthol, steam distilled from Mentha Arvensis, is a clear, colorless needle-like crystal with a typical peppermint odor. Menthol Crystals (L-) contain not less than 99.4% menthol. All but insoluble in water and glycerin, it is completely soluble in alcohol and essential oils. With a melting point of 42° (107°F), menthol crystals are easily solubilized in slightly warmed fixed oils, making it easily added to ointments, salves and balms. Menthol is used in pharmaceutical formulations for its analgesic and cooling effects. It can be used in cosmetics containing peppermint to boost its cooling and freshening effects. It is also widely used in the confectionery and flavoring industries. Menthol crystals begin to evaporate at 21° (70°F), therefore the container should be kept in a cool place and tightly covered when not in use. Menthol crystals should be used with caution and kept out of reach of children.


Typical Usage Rate 1.5 - 2%

So that our staff may enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, May 28th. We will reopen on Tuesday, May 29th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, May 29th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!

Just wanted to say that my package arrived SO QUICKLY and I received an email confirmation once my order was received and once it was shipped. It was shipped the same day, by the way. I will recommend this company and I very impressed with the customer service.

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you

To be late sometimes is expected. Things happen in business. I probably wouldn't do a review in that case. A company that was always extremely late, I'd probably do a negative review on. This is just the opposite...they are more often than not...even faster than I expect. They also cater to those who seek more natural formulations.
