Polysorbate 20 - Emulsifier

Polysorbate 20 - Emulsifier

POLYSORBATE 20 Known as TWEEN20, Polysorbate 20 is a great "in betweener" for other emulsifiers to help cover a wide range of oil in water (o/w) and water in oil (w/o) emulsions. It is highly effective in water alone to help essential oils solubilize and avoid the need to shake water and essential oil products before use. It can also be used as a viscosity modifier.

Polysorbate 20 can make emulsions appear somewhat hazy with a yellow tint. It is recommended that sprays made with Polysorbate be stored in opaque or amber glass packaging to diguise any potential color variation.
