Suggested Use

Food and cosmetic use


Our non-GMO lecithin powder is a wax-like ingredient derived from soybeans. It acts as an emulsifier and thickening agent for both food and cosmetic products and improves a products’ shelf life by acting as a mild preservative. A valuable ingredient for cosmetic creams, lotions, and other body care recipes. Powdered lecithin blends easily and disperses evenly into most products and recipes. Lecithin powder is a wonderful ingredient to add to your culinary and body care recipes. It contains many beneficial properties, and is used as an emulsifier, thickener, stabilizer, mild preservative, moisturizer, and emollient. Cosmetically, it may be added to moisturizers, makeup, shampoos, conditioners, body washes, lip balms, and many other products. It is a great alternative to other emulsifying and stabilizing agents, some of which are derived from petrochemical sources. For food use, lecithin is often found in chocolate, baked goods, salad dressing, and many other prepared foods.
