I Recommend This Product!
COMMENTS:  I am so happy that WSP started carrying a natural cyclomethicone alternative!! I ordered a pound, and I'm already almost out! This is perfect for body butters, it really is comparable to cyclomethicone, I really didn't notice much of a difference at all! I have ordered natural alternatives for cyclomethicone from other suppliers, before WSP started carrying this, the price here is far better!
