Formulating Guidelines

SurfThix™ DOE may need to be heated slightly in a water bath at up to 60°C for up to 10 minutes as it is quite thick before using. It can be added at 0.5% increments until desired viscosity is achieved. Use as the final step in the formulating process at room temperature after the addition of fragrance or essential oil, color, and preservative as those final ingredients may reduce or increase the viscosity, which will alter how much SurfThix™ DOE you wish to add.

Viscosity: 12,000 cps minimum
Percent Solids: 70% to 80%
Shelf Life: 12 months if stored in a cool, dark place.

I happened upon Lotioncrafter 3 years ago when my business became an idea. To this day I can't find better prices, variety or customer service. As my business becomes a reality I'll be sure to use Lotioncrafter as a source for my ingredients!

Rebecca Holland, (Holland Homestead Farm)

I recently received my latest order from Lotioncrafter, quickly as always, even though it is a very busy time of the year. As usual, the products did not disappoint in any way. I must however comment on this Shea Nilotica I purchased. It is the most amazing shea butter I've ever used and I've tried them all. This shea butter is extremely creamy, softer than any others, with very little scent and has absolutely no graininess. It is truly amazing stuff
Lynne Menard

Out of all online services that I have used before "Lotioncrafters" is the fastest!! I put my order in and an hour later my stuff was ready for shipment. So impressive :-) For me and my DIY lotions and potions I'll only use Lotioncrafters. I'm very happy with the products I received.
