Lecithin Liquid is an emulsifier which can be used in both water in oil and oil in water emulsions depending on temperature and ratio.One of the characteristics of Lecithin is it's suitability to both oil and water, making it an ideal choice for a variety of emulsion applications.
It is well suited to use in very thin or liquid emulsions where other emulsifiers will fail. Lecithin Liquid is also the best choice for emulsions that are close to a 50 / 50 oil / water ratio where other emulsifiers will destabilize. As a general rule, use higher amounts of Lecithin Liquid when you have a higher water ratio.
Soy Lecithin liquid is also a useful stabilizer for balms, ointments and salves. It helps stop vegetable oils and waxes from separating, furthermore it stabilises all types of emulsion.
