This product is a Sorbaitan Monolaurate (Polysorbates) that has been ethoxylated with approximately 20 moles of ethlene oxide to produce a water soluble, oil and water emulsifier. Solubilizer can also be used as a wetting agent, viscosity modifier, anti-stat, stabilizer and dispersing agent. It is the final ingredient necessary when combining fragrance oil with water-based products like baby shampoo because of very low eye irritation, body wash, toiletries, cosmetics and ointments. It is perfect for keeping the product clear and un-cloudy & prevents any separation of the oils or fragrance. Mix 1 part essential oil or fragrance to 1 part Solubilizer, blend, and then add to your product and it will retain its glass like clarity.
INCI: Polysorbate 20
Shelf Life: Solubilizer has a shelf-life of up to one year from date of manufacturing.

Rating: This is a very good product for blending essential oils in water when I make my cleaning sprays. The one problem is that the end result was always cloudy until I figured out to put in a little bit of propylene glycol. I use about as much as or less than the solubilizer. Otherwise, there is a cloudy layer that sits on top of the formula. Even then, after a while that disappears. A side note: A lot of people claim propylene glycol is antifreeze. It's not. It's merely added to antifreeze to give it is non-freezing properties. Propylene glycol is also used in the food industry and gives e-cigs the ability to produce vapor.
Rating: This is a very nice product. I use it in several products. Will purchase again.

Rating: I love that I can make an essential oil room spray that I don't have to constantly shake! I wish I'd known about this product years ago.

Rating: I just made my first lotion from start to finish, and used polysorbate 20 to the recipe even though it was not called for.But because another reviewer before me said that it works wonders when blending the impossible, I decided to give it try it, and am glad I did because my lotion turned out great. I will be purchasing this for sure.

Rating: Excellent product and so easy to use! Great price too.
Rating: I used this to mix my antibacterial/antiseptic/anti-everything EO's with my liquid hand soap. Before using Solubiliser my EO's just made and then sat in weird worm-like trails throughout. Very little Solibiliser was needed and it mixed in within 5 seconds. Very nice product at a terrific price.

Rating: This mixes so easily with EO's and adding distilled water to make wonderful room sprays. The end product is not crystal clear but almost like it's in a frosted bottle even though the bottle is clear. I don't mind that but I think I'll try adding a touch of dye to see how it looks.
Rating: The chemical name for this is "Polysorbate 20" (so don't buy it again like I almost did!), and it works great for blending fragrance and essential oils in water or alcohol. It clouds at first, but if you allow your mixture to settle for several minutes to several hours, it becomes crystal clear again. ND is great--great products, great customer service (they even sent a 'thank you' note with my 1st order), and great prices! I'll be ordering again and again.

Rating: I used this to mix evenly with fragrance oil before adding to liquid soap. NIGHT and DAY - without this the fragrance clumped and jelled, but with it I had great results. MUST have whether adding fragrance to lotion, liquid soap, or linen sprays made with water and alcohol.
