Lecithin is a naturally occurring group of phospholipids that can be found in plants and animals cells. It has been used in the food and cosmetic industry as a lipophilic emulsifier and thickener. Organic Soy Lecithin is rich in the B complex vitamins and is highly nutritive for the skin and hair. Organic Soy Lecithin is best used in heavier, creamier formulations and can be used with the beeswax and borax combination. Use Organic Soy Lecithin at 1-4% to keep your formulations from becoming too heavy and greasy. Our Organic Soy Lecithin is naturally derived from certified organic soy and is not bleached. This product is useful as an organic co-emulsifier for emulsions.
