Creamy texture lip balm additive

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at C&S and see they have an additive http://www.candlesandsupplies.net/2-oz.-Smooth-Creamy-Lotion-Bar-Additive?sc=8&category=105604 to make lotion bars and lip balms smooth and creamy textured when using butters like shea that can turn grainy.

 

I'm wondering is their additive, which is listed as Polyglycerol-3 Beeswax, the same or similar to Cera Bellina?:huh:

 

Anyone used the one from C&S? I am currently using Cera Bellina in my lip balm formulation. Although it gives a smoothness to my balms, it doesn't have the nice glide feel I really miss from ButterEZ.

Never mind. I found the answer. It is the same. Lotioncrafters has their Cera Bellina ingredient listed as Polyglycerol-3 Beeswax.

I have seen it and thought about purchasing to try it.  Haven't yet.  I loved ButterEZ.

I really miss butterEZ too. But I am having pretty good luck so far with the cera bellina from Lotioncrafters. It does work great for making the balm smooth and non-grainy. But I need to tweak my lip balm recipe so it is less hard with more glide. I am using 10% cera bellina in my recipe for now along with other waxes. I only use 20% wax in my recipe so split it between the cera bellina and my other wax.

 

I follow ITDF's master lip balm formulation percentages http://www.ingredientstodiefor.com/item/Natural_Lip_Balm_Recipe_/1306?category=80 and can't believe how lovely my balms turn out.

Thank you!  I might have to get some and give it a try.  I really dislike the grainy texture it gets otherwise.
