In short, we've learned about the awesome power of esters!
If you want to refer back to some of the ester posts, I've linked them permanently on this page, which I've changed to be Emollients: Oils, butters & esters.
If you're interested in purchasing esters, I have found the following shops carry them. I have not found a place in Canada to get these ingredients, and I don't know much about Australia or Europe, so these are American suppliers. Feel free to add other suppliers with links in the comment section!
- The Herbarie - They carry a lot of water soluble esters (look under oils & emollients - water soluble or oils & emollients).
- The Personal Formulator - I get most, if not all, of my esters here. (look under oils).
- Lotioncrafter - Look under emollients for their esters.
As a final note, this isn't the end of the ester series, but a break for a bit. I need to do more experimenting and research in the workshop with some of the new ones I've purchased and that might take a few weeks!
So join me tomorrow for the fun and excitement of the EXPERIMENTS IN THE WORKSHOP series, where I play with some new ingredients!
