    What is this wizardry? What is solidifying the balm and keeping it crystal clear?

    Thanks! Do you avoid additives? Does it cloud up easily? I’m just thinking of adding some oils and maybe a flavour

    I don’t know, I just happened to stumble upon these recently (with stumble I mean read, not buy nor try). Seems as if gels obtained therewith are always crystal clear… but that’s just regurgitating what advertisement claims.
