Why did I buy that? Glycol stearate

After reviewing yesterday’s post, I realized I kinda covered a ton of products in the links for CME, so let’s take a look at another ingredient! And sorry again for the late post – I’m going to be around 10! How am I sleeping in until 8? Does one person need 10 hours of sleep?...

Why did I buy that? Caprol Micro Express

Caprol Micro Express (INCI PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides (and) Polyglycerol-6 Dioleate (and) Glyceryl Caprylate/Caprate) is a non-ionic solubilizer that can create emulsions when you want to add something oily to something watery (so it’s a bit like using polysorbate 20, polysorbate 80, or Cromollient SCE).

Why did I buy that? More from the other day’s post!

Here are a few more ideas on how to use the ingredients we covered in the other day’s post!

Why did I buy that? A few ideas from yesterday’s post…

Wow, I’m posting this late, but I slept in this morning until 9:00! I’m such a rebel! Next I’ll be staying up past midnight, doing my crosswords in pen, and drinking milk straight out of the carton! (Okay, I won’t be doing the last thing as I’m lactose intolerant, but it’s the thought that counts,...

No post today…

My iPod touch and phone were stolen from my purse during a craft group tonight. I know who did it – he isn’t one of my regular kids – but there’s nothing that can be done as no one actually saw him do it, according to the police. I won’t be getting either of them...

Why did I buy that? Some posts I’ve already written

I asked the question – why did I buy that again? – and you answered with your list of ingredients you purchased for some project or recipe, the reason for which is lost in the mists of time! I thought I’d take a look at an ingredient one day, then how we’d use it in a...

I’m having trouble writing posts…

For the first time in two years, I missed a day, then I missed another. And the only reason I’m not counting today as a missed post day is thanks to this one (but I don’t think this one really counts). I’m having trouble finding inspiration from the how to duplicate things series. I had...
