I'm bumping this because I'm just completely smitten with this stuff.
I ordered all my supplies online this week to DIY some FSG and okra gel this weekend.
Kathy- I hope you pop in on this....I am a little confused about the honeyquat. I ordered some, but I'm not sure if I use in instead of agave or in addition to it? What exactly does it do? I know it's a humectant but does it also help with hold?
Here is what I have on hand/ ordered:
Citric acid (used to reduce pH)
Pottasium Sorbate (preservative)
EcoMulse (emulsifier- not sure I'm going to need this...)
Honeyquat (would I use this instead of Agave, or can I use both?)
Xanthan Gum (thickener)
Agave Nectar (for hold and shine)
Marshmallow Root (for slip and thickener?)
Grapeseed oil (it is mixed with Vit E oil)
Wish me luck! If I can get some good results from my experimenting, I may have a very large amount of products on the swap board next week, lol. Just kidding!
