Supplier updates!

A quick note about some things I found at Voyageur Soap & Candle! They've started carrying cetearyl alcohol, micronized zinc oxide (water or oil soluble), and a ton of new micas (the one to the left is blue lagoon mica). They'll be carrying two new products in July that I will be running down to get - Ritamulse SCG and Rita BTMS 225. The latter is a substitute for Incroquat BTMS-50. We we we so excited! I'll be doing some serious experimenting when that comes in, and you'll hear all about it! (Anything that can reduce our dependence upon Croda products is a bonus for me!) 

If you're looking for the black cocoa butter I mention in this sugar scrub bar, you can find it at Oshun (BC) or Creations from Eden (Alberta).

Please note, I bring you this information as a shopper at these suppliers, not because I've been compensated in any way to write about these new ingredients, and because I've seen comments or received e-mails asking about these ingredients! Remember, if you have a supplier you like, please visit the FAQ and comment in the appropriate section (scroll down to suppliers and comment in the post on your geographical area). Your opinion really matters!

Hi Susan!

Thanks for the supplier information, as I've been looking for the black cocoa butter.

I read Jessica's request about suppliers for stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, then she said she read in your blog that it's really the same as BTMS...(I think I interpreted that right, but if I'm wrong please correct me). I still want to try stearamidopropyl dimethylamine for myself but I don't see any suppliers selling it. Please tell us where we can find a supplier of it.

Yay Voyageur!!! I am loving the new micas! Drama Queen is a stunning deep red! And it works in both my soap and non soap creations!
