  • Where do you buy small amounts of Lauryl Laurate in the USA?

    I use a moderate amount of this product but would still like to buy it a Kilo or so at a time.  Seems like all the usual suspects are higher than a product like this should be….around $21 per pound.  

    Anyone got a supplier up their sleave that will sell 1-2 Kg….at a good price?


    Note I am aware of LotionCrafter, MC, TKB, and FSS.

    Hey Simply Ingredients….put this on your list Valerie!

    thank you….I also bought some from TKB….and did not care for it nearly as much as the stuff from FSS.  It had A MUCH LOWER MELT POINT.  For the haptics I am trying to achieve, the higher melt point works much better.

    Had them both on the table (long term) and the TKB is often 50% solid, and 50% liquid.  The FFS LL is always a dry solid…sitting side by side.

    The stuff from LC….seems to be somewhere between those two.

    If you’re aware of the re-packagers, try UL Prospector and see if the larger manufacturers will send you  a sample where you only pay for shipping. It may be similar in cost.
