Soy Lecithin (derived from soy beans) is an excellent natural ingredient additive to adjust the texture of balms, body butters, and lotions. Soy Lecithin adds a creamy, adhesive texture which is especially beneficial to lip balms and lipsticks and is excellent to use in lotions, creams, and other skin care formulas
Our organic liquid Soy Lecithin is 100% vegan, and may also extend the shelf life of a product by acting as a very mild preservative (not to be used exclusively as a preservative).
Properties of Liquid Lecithin:
- Natural Surfactant
- Emulsifying and Stabilizing Agent
The texture is a thick, viscous, semi-solid, dark golden liquid which resembles molasses. It can be made less viscous by warming in a double boiler for 10-15 minutes.
