Just purchased the info packs and will love to start with the anhydrous vit c gel but the oil/wax ointment is my problem. I have some questions?
1. Can I use jojoba oil as the oil in this mixture. I ask this because I have read that it's actually a wax.
2. When you say specifically emulsifying wax, do you have any ingredient in mind? I read somewhere that if the E-wax is not made of Cetearyl Alcohol and Polysorbate 60, its not really emulsifying wax, is this true?
You recommended Mountain rose herbs but their emulsifying wax is made of Cetostearyl Alcohol and Ethoxylated Sorbitan Ester. Will this be okay for the purpose I intend?
I started making skincare to stay away from chemicals but EWG labels emulsifying wax as "4" ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/702249/EMULSIFYING_WAX/
3. Is there any alternative? can I use beeswax instead of e-wax?


    Thank you

    #1 - probably on but I haven't tested it.
    #2 - The two variants you mentioned are sufficiently chemically similar
    #3 - Haven't tried bees wax but it's not an emulsifier, which allow to get smoother texture. If you don't care about texture, you can just mix vit C powder with emu oil or coconut oil.
