Why did I buy that again? Lipidthix
As an aside, if you get something that isn't a true butter - say, something like soy butter - it will have an INCI of soy oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil. If you use this with something like soy oil, you should have a similar product.
Lotioncrafter recommends we use it at 1% to 35% in the oil phase of our products. It has a melting point of 51˚C or 156˚F, and it's really important to get your products over that temperature if you want to make butters that don't have grains.
This may or may not be the same product as the Vegethix found at the Herbarie. Vegethix sounds the same, but it's in flake format. Unfortunately, I can't find the proper name for this ingredient or the manufacturer, so it's hard to know exactly what this ingredient is in a Google search. (I always encourage you to know your INCI names for this very reason!)
As a note, I have not been paid to say something nice about this ingredient. I bought it from Lotioncrafter with my own funds, and I'm writing about it because it's an interesting ingredient.
Join me tomorrow to see how it we can make our own butters with this ingredient!
