What can I add to prevent graininess in my lamb tallow balm. I asked Lotion Crafter about their Butter EZ. Here is their reply. (loved their fast reply!) "It should help prevent graininess in any fat that is prone to that, but I have not heard of anyone using it in lamb tallow based products to advise specifically about that fat. It’s certainly worth a try."

Any other suggestions?

Right here, silly!
I use their ButterEZ in all my lip balms and liquid lip glosses with butters. It works wonderfully, but you'll have to experiment with how much will be enough for your different formulas. For example, in my formula with mango butter, 10% ButterEZ (as per the % of the mango butter in my formula) works great at keeping the grains at bay, but in my formula with kokum butter, it takes a little more... 15% as per my kokum amount. And in my liquid lip gloss formula with shea butter, it takes 25% as per the shea amount.
