LipidThix™ is simply vegetable oil that has been hydrogenated to a powdered form. Soluble in oils, it is ideal for thickening oil soluble products and can be used in balms, butters, salves and scrubs. Creation of a butter such as avocado butter is as simple as melting 20% LipidThix™ with 80% avocado oil, mixing well and allowing it to cool. Firmness can be adjusted by varying the percentage of LipidThix™ added to the oil.

When working with LipidThix™, it is important to heat the oil and the LipidThix™ together until they are about 165°F to make sure that the LipidThix™ is completely melted (even though it may look like it is).  Otherwise, your product will be grainy.  Make a sample formulation using a 20:80 ratio, as noted above and let it cool.  Check the consistency of the resulting butter and if you need it firmer, increase the mixture to a 25:75 ratio, if you want it softer try a 15:85 ratio.  Work with it until you get what you need.  Each butter may require a slightly different ratio to achieve the consistency you want.

Our Customers Say...
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So fast and brilliant service!
I'm your fan!

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your cocoa butter. It's less expensive than my other suppliers (when they can get it at all), and I love the way it's so convenient to measure out- no more cutting and getting it all over the place! I will certainly order from you from now on. Thank you!

Lotioncrafter has been and continues to be one of the most efficiently run and dependable soap and lotion ingredient companies I purchase from. Even shipping from Washington State to Texas, I know my order will be processed promptly and correctly and will arrive within a week of being placed (many times within a couple of days!). Kudos to Jenny and her staff! Caroline Lawson, TLC Farms, Franklin, TX

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you

I am so impressed my Lotion Crafters turn around for shipping orders, it's excellent. Everything is always safely packaged in a way that's easy to store. This is the type of supplier small businesses need.
Thank you.

Thanks also for the pipettes.
