    1. You can, but in my tests, every time I’ve used Varisoft EQ65 my hair was soft, but appeared dull. So I wouldn’t use Varisoft as a leave-in based on my tests. Maybe you’ll have different results. But I wasn’t impressed with how it dulled the hair even though the softness and detangling was very, very apparent on my hair. UPDATE (Sep 26 2020) The last time I tried Varisoft EQ 65 by itself, it worked quite well. Maybe it’s an ingredient that doesn’t play well with others. But using it alone didn’t give me any dull results

    1. I think it depends on your recipe and whether you’ll be using an additional thickener. As long as you stick to the recommended overall usage rate for Varisoft EQ (which is between 1-10%) you should be fine. If you normally use 4% BTMS, try 4% Varisoft and see if you like it. However, you may not be able to process Varisoft EQ in a one-pot (one mason jar) method like what’s possible with BTMS-50. If using Varisoft, heat the two phases separately then combine.

  1. I use this emulsifier melt it with oils not water like they recommend at lotions crafters. Hope this helps.

  2. I use varisoft with olivem 800 .5% to every 1% of varisoft and btms-50 or instead the silky and soft conditioner at which is cetearyl alcohol and ceteareth 20 you can find it at wholesalessuppliesplus.com
