    Hi all,

    Does anybody know of a supplier who can provide plant/fruit extracts / juice at low cost (say around $1.5/pound)?
    I have a customer who likes to have extracts at >10% in their formulas, so I find myself using aloe vera juice (from Protameen) and witch hazel (from American Distilling) all the time. With all the recent debate about aloe and the characteristic odor of witch hazel, I would like to find something like cucumber extract that I can use at high %’s. Active Organics is too expensive for this purpose.
    Thanks in advance!

    Liquid extracts are dissolved in a solvent and are not intended to use @ 10% - if you find a cheaper version they are just more diluted. I would try to have a talk with the customer first.
