Jarchem Presents New Shea Butter

June 23, 2008

Jarplex SB-WD is a new water dispersible shea butter available from Jarchem. According to the company, this unique, patent pending, all-natural product is applicable in all types of personal care formulations, especially water-based formulations such as shampoos, conditioners and shower body washes. This ingredient is a multi-functional and cost-effective way to add high levels of shea functionality (6-8% unsaponifiables) as an emollient and/or emulsifier, says Jarchem. Application levels range from 1% to 20%; luxurious lotions can be made at slightly higher levels.
