Can I use a different oil, butter, wax?

 

It might surprise you to learn that you can’t just swap out oils, butters and waxes in cosmetic formulas easily… and there is a lot to consider like how the spread or melting point could impact your formula, and if antioxidant is needed! There are also some product forms that are better suited to using certain plant oils, esters, butters or waxes – and some formulas where these materials may not be suited at all!

Choosing the right oil, butter, wax or combination of these materials, is important for the product form, skin feel, performance and your company philosophy. It can also impact the viscosity, skin feel and shelf life of the finished product. So, which oils, butters or waxes can you swap out effectively, how much should you use in different product forms, and when are certain oils, butters or waxes not suitable to use?

This workshop looks at over 50 different plant oils, esters, triglycerides, butters, waxes, mineral oils and silicones that are readily available; and which formulation types they are best suited to. It also talks you through the pros and cons, recommended inputs and formulation needs of each. Make confident oil, butter and wax selections.
