    Default Alternative To Crommolient SCE

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone had found an alternative to Cromollient SCE in Europe? Lotioncrafter ships worldwide but it's rather expensive!

    This was recommended on Reddit: https://www.gracefruit.com/item/779/...tener-767.html

    Is there a reason why Cetearath20 and Glyceryl Stearate aren't typically used even though outlined as per Tom Busby's pdf?

    Thanks

    Steve

    PEG-6-Caprylic/Capric Glycerides will not emulsify MCT oil or Squalane oil. I've tried it, although it's a nice solubilizer for Optiphen ND.

    Polysorbate 60 or 80 or 20?

    Thanks Tom, will just bite the bullet and pay shipping from US.

    Can you recommend a preservative for my simple MCT oil, climbazole lotion?

    I like Optiphen ND at 0.5%, which should be added at 100F (the cool down phase), however, it's not very water soluble so it goes into solution better if you add 0.05% PEG-6-Caprylic/Capric Glycerides. Buy a stick blender too.
