143 pages – over 41,000 words – with all new charts and a new viscosity and surface tension interactive chart – it’s one of my biggest yet! (And so much fun to write!)

Combined with the other e-books – Part one was 141 pages and part two was 161 pages, so combined with this e-book, this series has been a colossal 445 pages! Little wonder my arms are so tired! 

There’s so much to learn in this third and final part of the combining emollients series!

Learn why our butters are solid at room temperature while oils are liquid.

Learn why esters feel less greasy than natural oils.

Learn why hydrocarbons like squalane or dodecane are lighter and even volatile at room temperature.

Learn everything you wanted to know about emollients so you can make amazing products that have exactly the sensory characteristics you want!

Want to learn why our emollients feel the way they do and how we can combine them to create awesome, silky, smooth, non-draggy, cushioned, lubricious combinations for anhydrous and emulsified products? This e-book starts where part two left off, and we’ll be taking a look at how surface tension combined with viscosity, the size, shape, and polarity along with the interfacial tension between emollients explain the differences between natural oils, butters, hydrocarbons, esters, silicones, and more.

    About the author

    Susan Barclay Nichols lives in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

    In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products. Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond and their adorable dog, Sasja.

    Because of the downloadable nature of this product, e-zines and e-books are final sale, and therefore not eligible for a refund.
